Ah, Madeira, the island of treasure-map levada trails, honeypot towns and emerald green valleys… yep, she’s a looker alright. But this sunshine break destination has a whole lot more to offer than just dazzling scenery and old-school charm. That’s right, the Post Office Travel Money Report has crowned her majesty Madeira as the best-value island for autumn sun!
From stocking up on sun cream to top local tipples, savings come as standard in this pretty archipelago. Looking for an autumn break that doesn’t break the bank? Madeira’s the best of the bunch…
Free days out
Madeira takes pocket-friendly to a whole new level thanks to its range of completely free ways to fill your days. Hunt down street art on Santa Maria Street in Funchal Old Town, check out the Cathedral of Funchal, walk the levada trails, spend a day at the beach… the list goes on! Why not pay a visit to swoon-worthy Santana with its colourful thatched houses and olde worlde wonder? The great thing about this island is it’s primed for al fresco activities, so outdoorsy types will be in their element.
Budget bites, snacks on the go, all-out fine dining and glittering Michelin stars – Madeira’s restaurants offer something for everyone. What’s more, the Post Office Travel Money Report placed Madeira as the cheapest spot for cups of coffee, bottles of local lager and glasses of vino when compared to islands in the same category!
All Inclusive options
