Madeira for hiking lovers

If you are looking for some challenging hiking opportunities, today is the perfect time to book a cottage in Madeira so you can explore amazing locations like the Vereda do Areeiro trail. It winds through around 7.4 kilometres of territory and takes you between two of the highest points on the island. These are Pico do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo. They are known for their long, steep slopes and their rocky staircases. Upon reaching the high point of your hike, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view that you are sure to remember forever. Another hiking route to make note of is the 25 Springs of Rabaçal. It offers you the chance to take on an 11-kilometre circuit that goes through natural lagoons and lush vegetation as well as a trip around magnificent waterfalls. We also recommend checking out Levada do Caldeirão Verde which is a popular half-day route that is perfect for families and goes through tunnels of greenery. It is also renowned for its magical scenery.

Madeira for scuba diving lovers

Another reason to choose the finest cottages for rent in Madeira is because of the scuba diving opportunities that the region offers. Madeira is a true mecca for scuba diving and snorkelling between the months of February to November. This is because of its warm waters that offer excellent visibility. Among the best spots for snorkelling and scuba diving are the shores of Porto Santo Island. This is a beloved marine observation area that features a pair of artificial reefs and an extensive amount of marine fauna. Another spot for snorkelling and scuba diving is the Garajau Nature Reserve. It encompasses the most incredible dive sites that can be found in the region known as the "T-Reef". It is home to fascinating species such as stingrays, barracudas and moray eels. You should also consider stopping by Ponta de Sao Lourenco to visit a dive spot that is famed for geological richness. Within its crystal clear waters, you can observe marine animals that include scorpion fish, octopus, starfish and anemones.

Madeira is home to one of the largest fireworks displays in the world. Madeira's New Year's Eve fireworks tradition was recognized in 2006 as the "world's largest fireworks display" by the Guinness Book of Records.
