Experience a refined, natural, elegant, tropical New Year on the most beautiful and sunniest of Europe’s islands. Chic and gastronomic but also nature and sporty, Madeira has been your favourite destination for a New Year in Europe for 5 years.
Like Marbella, Biarritz, Cannes, Madeira is one of the galactic stars of upscale tourism in Europe. In recent years, it has also attracted travellers looking for outdoor sport, hiking in nature, birdwatching, in search of the most beautiful waterfalls, best instagramable spots and kilometer-long beaches of golden sand (Porto Santo ).
Whether you are an influencer or a hiker, the unmissable event is the evening of December 31 in the bay of Funchal. The largest fireworks display in Europe, at 360 degrees, awaits you for unforgettable memories.
For a meal in a prestigious and affordable place, book at Restaurant Villa Cipriani in Funchal. Have you gone overboard with Madeira Wine and Madeira Rum? Treat yourself to a lazy afternoon on Calheta beach on New Year’s Day.
Are you an early riser? Climb to the top of Madeira’s peak and watch the sunrise from Pico do Arieiro. Many flights connect the largest cities in America and the United Kingdom to Madeira, for a New Year that is both cosmopolitan and elegant, but also traditional, exotic and folkloric.
Book your flights to Funchal, your accommodation and your tours and activities in Madeira such as a “Funchal Yacht Tour with Dolphin and Whale Watching”.
How to get there: Book your flights to Funchal Airport.
Where to stay: “Reid’s Belmond” where Churchill stayed.
