Best Time to Visit

Madeira is known for its warm Mediterranean climate, which means that temperatures are high all year round and never drop below 14 degrees. If you are a sun-worshipper, visit during July and August - the temperature is around 25 degrees. If you are planning to do a lot of hiking and other physical activities, visit the island during April and May. Later in time it could be too hot to enjoy hiking, and after summer it can get quite rainy. During spring you can see beautiful gardens at their best.
