A tranquil island in the middle of the Atlantic, but by no means a sleepy one. Flowers bloom in all colours of the rainbow, and spring temperatures even in winter make Madeira a particularly attractive destination.

MARCO POLO Madeira presents an island with varied landscapes almost like no other. The guide leads you along spectacular coasts, through green valleys, ancient juniper forests and to impressive summits. But it isn’t just nature lovers who’ll find Madeira a paradise: in the capital, Funchal, shopping and culture are both at large, while beaches and lidos are ideal for relaxing.

The Insider Tips reveal how you can see Madeira from above and where you might encounter monk seals. The Best Of pages highlight typical aspects of Madeira, recommend things to do for free, have tips for rainy days and for where you can relax and unwind. The Perfect Route takes you right across the island, visiting the nicest places en route.

You’ll find out What’s Hot on the island and which websites, blogs and apps can tell you more. The Trips & Tours chapter takes you to cascading waterfalls and though a largely virgin wilderness where fitness and sureness of foot are essential. In Sports & Activities you’ll find all the contact details for pursuits such as canyoning and parasailing alongside more established pastimes of hiking and water sports. The Dos & Don’ts tell you why even men shouldn’t walk around without a top on and why women can leave their high heels at home.

MARCO POLO Madeira provides comprehensive coverage of the island. To help you get around there’s a detailed road atlas, maps of Funchal and the island’s bus routes in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
