When To Go

Madeira’s Mediterranean climate – from mild winters to sizzling summers – make this a perfect island for year-round exploration. Clear blue skies and warm temperatures on the coast are ideal for a spot of sunbathing. While many travel to Madeira for its spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks display – once in the Guinness World Records for being the largest in the world. 

Top Tip from SLH

Funchal, Madeira’s capital, is famous for its abundance of fennel – in fact, that’s where its name comes from. Look out for some in the local markets.
