Madeira is a unique place, especially for those looking for a mixture of emotions while on holiday. Often branded by our visitors as the "Pearl of the Atlantic", Madeira truly lives up to its title.
Madeira is becoming increasingly known as an outdoor destination as well as growing focus on leisure and well-being. The Island has obtained international titles that put it at a high level of recognition and prominence at a global scale.
Machico’s harmonious connection to the various elements that form Madeira make it an important part of the concept of the Pearl of the Atlantic.
The natural marine reserves and Laurissilva forest, geodiversity and geosites, nature activities and experiences, food and its connection to the sea, climate and hospitality, safety and well-being and traditional events are some of the dynamics that will inspire all five of your senses.
