Madeira is a scenic, year-round resort. The north remains mainly rural in nature whilst the south, especially in and around Funchal has developed with the discerning traveller in mind. Most, but by no means all , Ponta do Sol (literally ‘Sun Point’) is – as the name already implies – a region where you will find more sun throughout the year than in any other part of the island and Its breath-taking landscapes positions it as a jewel in Madeira's crown.

In recent years Madeira has seen changes, bringing a greater variety of tourists from many different age groups and walks of life. The island, a once haunt of the older generation has of late been rediscovered by the younger more affluent set. Now seen as the home of “Ronaldo”, it no longer has the image of a small rural community but a stunning all year round summer island destination that is in easy reach of most of Europe and is attracting a classier younger crowd who not only like to enjoy a night out but also love the spectacular drives and friendly people that can be found in abundance. Madeira’s fine dining, water sports, perfect climate, and spectacular scenery, are second to none and a ‘must’ for the modern traveller.
