Santo da Serra
The island of Madeira, and neighbouring Porto Santo, are found in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. These islands offer natural beauty, including exotic flowers and fauna; two thirds are protected areas and the largest forest in the world – the Laurissilva – is located.
On both islands, the temperature has a warm climate most of the year with an average of around 20-25 degrees throughout the summer months; Madeira being an ideal location to holiday and play golf, enjoy a walk, plus experiencing other activities such as sailing, scuba diving, sea fishing and canyoning. Porto Santo, being a quieter island, gives you the chance to enjoy a beach holiday and a little golf but also a place where you can escape from the stress of daily life.
Gastronomy is a key factor on Madeira with many restaurants offering local cuisine, typical to this Portuguese island, such as Beef Espetada (a skewer cooked on a wood or charcoal grill), Picadinho, a traditional Madeiran dish (a sharing platter made with beef or Picado which is made with octopus or squid). There is also an abundance of fish and vegetable dishes to enjoy.
Madeira also has annual festivals such as the Carnival parades, flower festival and New Year’s Eve fireworks display; as well as being islands to discover, enjoy and being virtually crime free, these are two of the safest holiday destinations in the world and definitely worth a visit.
