An autonomous region of Portugal, Madeira is a sublime archipelago divided into four groups of sub-tropical islands, Madeira, Porto Santo, the Desertas Islands and the Selvagens Islands. The former two are populated and developed as major tourist resorts whereas the latter are uninhabited islands that exhibit nature in its raw, unadulterated state. Madeira is famous for eternal spring that lasts throughout the year, boasting a spectacular display of diverse flora and fauna. This evergreen archipelago is deservingly called ‘The Pearl of the Atlantic’ owing to its divine scenic beauty and plethora of interesting landmarks. Geographically in Africa, Madeira lies at a one-and-a-half hour flight from the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. The terrain is peppered with numerous hiking trails, golf courses, volcanic sites, and botanic gardens. Glistening calm waters enclose Madeira providing the perfect opportunity for snorkeling, surfing, fishing, sailing, scuba diving, sailing and devouring the sunset.
