Scenic mountainous landscapes, stunning wildlife and fabulous food
If it’s adrenaline you’re after, then the Madeira coast is the place to try surfing and windsurfing. Jardim do Mar, Paul do Mar and Sao Vicente all offer excellent surfing, with waves that will thrill the most experienced of surfers. But Madeira is not a destination for learner surfers, and the rocky beaches can be tough on light surfboards. Windsurfing conditions in Madeira are also very good.
