If you’re wondering when the best time of year to visit Madeira is, you’ll be relieved to hear it boasts subtropical weather and an inviting climate all year round, thanks to the islands geographic location and mountain orography.
Temperatures range between 25ºC in summer and 17ºC in winter, and humidity levels are mild and comfortable for most of the year too, making it a truly reliable holiday destination for sun seekers and nature lovers. Some people even call Madeira the island of eternal spring. Therefore, it’s no wonder it was voted one of the very best for winter sun by European Best Destinations.
Interestingly enough, Madeira’s many different microclimates mean that the scenery can change within a few kilometres and that if you want to, you can experience four seasons in a single day.
The influence of the warm Atlantic Gulf stream, all the way from the sunshine State of Florida in the United States, means sea water temperatures average around 22°C in summer and 18°C in winter. This means you’ll be able to enjoy splashing around throughout the year, and even have the option to go for a dip or enjoy watersports during the run up to Christmas.
