Visit the nature reserves in Madeira

The stunning scenery is what Madeira is famous for and a huge two thirds of the landscape is a protected nature reserve. This means you're never too far away from experiencing impeccable natural beauty. To see some of the most striking landscapes in one trip, take a cable car, drive or trek up to the mountains for dramatic views from above.

Cabo Girao is one of the highest cliff faces in the world and the views certainly don't disappoint as you can see beyond the green island to the glistening blue that seem to stretch on forever. Learn about the history of Madeira in the small settlement of Sao Vicente where you can visit the impressive volcanic caves.

For a spot of relaxation, visit the rock lava pools in Porto Moniz and bathe in the naturally heated pools, speckled by the huge rocks that make up one of the islands most famous landmarks.
