Covered with exotic vegetation, Madeira is an important natural ecological reserve, with two thirds of the island protected. With its magnificent bay, mountain peaks, old-world charm, stunning climate and delicious wines, this beautiful city has been an important stop off for ocean travellers for centuries. Thankfully, it has retained its original charm and continues to be an important tourist destination for those seeking natural beauty, rest and relaxation.
