European Best Destinations has recently published the top ten destinations in Europe that offer the best hotels, restaurants and activities for tourists.
There are many places on the map of Europe that stand out as luxury travel destinations, but among them, Madeira Island is selected as the most exclusive destination.
In the first place, European Best Destinations has ranked Marbella in Spain, followed by Positano in Italy, with Madeira coming in third place, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
“It is almost always sunny in Porto Santo and Funchal and the Southern coast of the island of Madeira. Humidity is much more common on the hills in the island’s centre and on the North coast. As far as temperatures are concerned, the South is warmer, but overall Madeira enjoys a mild temperature all year round with temperatures between 16 and 26 degrees,” concludes European Best Destinations.
To enjoy the stunning beauties of the islands in Madeira, you have to spend more than one day there.
Many tourists have discovered Madeira during a boat cruise since, obviously, you can not get there by train or bus.
“There is so much to discover and learn about the people, the climate, the geography, and Madeira’s history. We recommend travellers to fly to Madeira and plan to stay at least five to seven days,” the European Best Destinations recommends.
The Christmas holiday season remains one of the most exciting for visitors to the famous fireworks festival known as one of the biggest in the world.
Moreover, for people who love nature, Madeira is an island rich in activities.
According to European Best Destinations, if you want to visit unique places like Cabo Girao cliffs or the Camara de Lobos fishing resort, or even just walk around, you should visit Funchal and its surroundings. Therefore if you want to spend the night in nature, you will be able to find many rural accommodations throughout the island.
Often called “Quinta,” old farms on Madeira have been converted into tourist accommodation. Amongst the best hotels of this kind in the country is Quinta do Furao, located in Santana on the north coast of Madeira.
In addition, if you decide to stay on the south side of the island, you can do almost anything on foot, but a trip to Madeira would be incomplete without a visit to the forests of Madeira and the whole northern part of the island.
The Regional Tourism Board announced on March 12 that travellers arriving in Madeira are no longer required to submit valid travel documents for COVID-19 as the archipelago has already lifted its entry measures.
This means that regardless of their country of origin, all travellers can enter the Madeira Autonomous Region without having to provide a valid certificate of vaccination, recovery or test upon arrival.
