In Madeira, conservation of the environment is «naturally»
made easier. The island has no heavy industry to pollute
it. As you move further inland, you’ll find an abundance
of mountains, waterfalls and levadas (small
water-courses). With these as a backdrop, tourists
get to know the island through walks that bring them,
peacefully, face to face with Madeira’s extraordinary
world of nature."
If you’re interested in sport, Madeira’s got everything
to offer you, both on land and in the water. You’ll
have the opportunity to scuba dive, go canoeing, row,
jet ski, windsurf, water ski, fish, hunt, ride, play
tennis... the list could go on and on. There are two
superb and challenging 18 hole golf courses. Even
if you’re not an aficionado, you can still enjoy the
fabulous surrounding scenery before making your way
to the 19th hole! Madeira doesn’t stop when the sun
goes down. There’s an exciting night life for you
to enjoy in the bars and discos where you’ll find
fun-loving people who just want to have a good time."
Madeira is in the centre of the world, an essential
factor when it comes to hosting congresses, seminars
and international meetings. The region is fully equipped
with all the modern technology required by such gatherings."
Furthermore, Madeira enjoys an exceptional climate
and it’s a matter of pride for its people to offer
service of only the highest quality. Safe, welcoming
and with its environment being carefully protected,
Madeira is confidently looking forward to the challenges
of the next century."
