Madeira is a Portuguese island off of the coast of North Africa. It is a spectacular island that is enjoyable to visit all year round. There are incredible amounts of natural beauty here, including crystal blue waters, sandy white beaches, majestic mountains and gorgeous flora and fauna. If you are looking for a vacation spot a little out of the ordinary and exquisitely beautiful, than Madeira is the island for you.
This island is blooming year round. Even the winter is pleasurable, since the worst weather that it may endure is a slight rainfall. Otherwise, it is warm and sunny year round and it is kept cool by delightful ocean breezes. However, every once in a while there may be winter storms where the waters become rough and choppy. If you are planning on sailing, surfing, fishing and participating in any other water activity it is best to go during the summer season.
