If you chose April–May, you will be able to visit the renowned Festa da Flor, with flower carpets, expositions, shows and the main attraction—the colourful parade known as the Cortejo Alegórico. You can spend all of your pent-up energy on hikes along Madeira's paths and trails, or you can use it taking brisk swims in the middle of the Atlantic. If you go out on a boat in search of whales or dolphins, you will likely stop at one of several coves and dive straight into the contrasting greens and ocean blues of this breathtaking island.
Discover the picturesque Santana area, Camara de Lobos bay, the incredible natural pools of Porto Moniz full of natural beauty, or the Curral das Freiras, where the views of the forest are impressive and the Madeira countryside is revealed in all its splendour.
