Madeira – Weather
A spectacular destination for hiking, Madeira has a pleasing climate all year round. The summers are hot and dry, which are perfect for lounging by the pool if hiking’s not your thing. The winters typically see some rain but are still mild, which is ideal for making the most of the sights. In late spring and summer the island is a hive of activity with holidaymakers visiting to bask in the mid 20s heat. With the hot winds from North Africa, temperatures can reach highs of 30°C. Travelling in early spring, autumn and even winter is still doable as the sun shines for 6-7 hours a day and the climate fluctuates in the low 20s, but rarely falls below 10°C. However, rain becomes more of a possibility with November, December and March generally being wetter than most.
