• Madeira in 1

The island of Madeira is lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream with the temperatures being very comfortable in summer and not too mild in winter, this makes it an enchanting holiday destination at any time of the year.

There is a wide range of opportunities to satisfy your leisure requirements,  on water you can go sailing, fishing, whale & dolphin spotting, water skiing, surfing, diving and as the sea temperatures vary between 18 to 24 ºC depending on the time of year, you can always go swimming, for deep sea diving enthusiasts, the Garajau coast line offers one of Europe’s first underwater nature reserves.

Back on land there are lots of leisure activities available. For the perfect day out, relax and let someone else do the driving with Madeira coach tours… take a luxury coach to the best parts of the island to see the rugged North and West or the mountainous South and East or just take a half day trip to the famous Nun’s Valley.

Madeira, with its rugged landscapes, has over the years constructed many cable cars and scenic elevators for you to truly appreciate its stunning scenery and world famous natural beauty and a wide variety of gardens and parks that are carefully maintained and exhibit a vast array of flowers, plants and trees. In the year 2000 Madeira – represented by the city of Funchal – received a gold award for the ‘European Flowering City 2000’. This prestigious award, which is much sought after by many European cities, has deservedly been presented to one of the most beautiful gardens in the world – no wonder they call it the ‘floating garden in the Atlantic’

Canico is on the south east coast of the island, 5 miles East of Funchal and 8 miles South West of the airport, it is set just off the coastal highway boasting stunning views of the dramatic shoreline of black volcanic rock.
