Madeira attracts many visitors each year with its laidback charm and picturesque views of the surrounding ocean and volcanic landscape. A Madeira all inclusive holiday is the best way to enjoy this subtropical group of islands.
While Madeira is classed as a region of Portugal – however, while it has a European feel to it with its layout and architecture, it is essentially a tropical island, and should be enjoyed as such.
While Europe is experiencing the worst of its weather, Madeira is basking in warmth pretty much all year round. And with its beaches and lush forests, this jewel of the Atlantic has been dubbed “the most enviable island on Earth”. High tea can be enjoyed on hillside botanical gardens, and wine flows freely. Most visitors come to enjoy the sedate pace of life that life on the island offers.
There is an abundance of great places to stay on Madeira. The best places to stay on one of our cheap Madeira all inclusive holidays include the Pestana Bay Aparthotel, which offers amazing views over the cliffs of Cabo Girao and is just 50m from the Praia Formosa Beach and close to the vibrant city of Funchal.
For an all inclusive experience at a family run hotel, we love the Calheta Beach Hotel, which is just by a sandy beach, marina and mountains.
There are lots of other great choices as well, and suitable for all kinds of traveller – young, old, families, solo and honeymooners.
Madeira isn’t the destination for nightclubs and drinks promotions. There’s plenty of other islands for those types of holidays. People come to Madeira for the wine, food, botanical gardens, great hotels and stunning views. If you want to have some downtime to treat yourself, read books and relax – Madeira should be the number one destination on your list.
Activity-wise, the island is far from dull. Catch a cable car in Funchal, go toboggan riding, hike along a levada (geographical curves which cut through lush mountain vegetation and bring waters to the high altitudes). Cool down in the natural seawater pools towards the north west of the island, enjoy a spot of whale and dolphin watching, and round up a day listening to traditional Fado singing in a cosy Madeira bar.
One of the reasons why cheap Madeira all inclusive holidays are so popular, is that they are so convenient. Offering great value for money, they provide you with a base in a central part of town that offers sea views and amenities close by, allowing you to fill your days with sightseeing around the island. You can then come home to an endless supply of food, drink and comforts before charting your next move.
All inclusives help with budgeting and ease the flow of the holiday – perfect when travelling with families and large groups.
