What’s the weather like in Madeira in April?
Madeira’s off the northwest coast of Africa and has a subtropical climate. You’ll find that temperatures are nice and pleasant in April, with plenty of sun and only a little rain. Warm Gulf Stream waters will heat you up, while the cooler Canary Current does the opposite. North easterly winds mean you’ll be warmest and driest in the south, while the Sahara Desert can make things really hot when it sends winds over to Madeira.
The average high is 19ºC in April, which is perfectly warm enough for you to relax on the beach or by the pool. You should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings though as it can get quite cool once the sun goes down. The sea temperature is 18ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 49mm of rain over nine days, and you can expect 13 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high, so don’t forget to bring your sun cream. Sunset’s around 8.30pm in the early part of the month.
