Olá e sejam bem-vindos(as) ao grupo das ilhas da Madeira. Este grupo é bilingue! O nosso chat no Facebook é... aqui


Hello and welcome to the group of the Madeira islands. This group is bilingual! Our group chat in Facebook is... here


Em pleno Oceano Atlântico, muito próximo da Europa, situam-se as ilhas da Madeira e do Porto Santo. A simpatia constitui o atributo principal das gentes deste arquipélago, cuja beleza natural e o clima ameno se apresentam como os seus principais atractivos.


A ilha da Madeira é também muito famosa pela sua envolvente natural, cujo elemento principal é a Floresta Laurissilva, floresta relíquia, classificada pela UNESCO como Património Mundial Natural.


A tradição e os costumes, cimentados em monumentos, museus, igrejas e presentes até em alguns produtos regionais como o Vinho e o Bordado Madeira, perduram ao longo dos séculos e merecem uma atenção muito especial.


A ilha do Porto Santo, localizada a 50Km da ilha da Madeira é, simplesmente, o paraíso na Terra! Esta ilha, com uma praia de areia dourada de 9Km de comprimento, banhada por águas cristalinas, constitui o melhor refúgio para usufruir de umas férias tranquilas.


Já as desabitadas ilhas Desertas e Selvagens constituem um alvo para, em jeito de expedição, conhecer, em poucas horas, algumas espécies de fauna e flora raríssimas no planeta. As Ilhas Desertas estão situadas a cerca de 22 milhas a sudeste da cidade do Funchal e constituem uma Reserva Biogenética, na qual se encontra o último refúgio atlântico para a Foca Monge, a foca mais rara do Mundo.






Here in the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from Europe, we find the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo. The archipelago is famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate.


Madeira is also very famous for its natural environment, where the most important feature is the Laurissilva Forest, a relic of the Tertiary Age, which has been classified by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Site.


Its traditions and customs, visible in its old buildings, museums and churches and even in regional products like its wine and embroidery, have lasted for centuries and deserve your very special attention.


Porto Santo is 50 km from Madeira and is quite simply heaven on earth! This island, with a 9 kilometre beach of golden sand washed by warm, crystalline waters is the ideal refuge for a quiet, relaxing holiday.


As for the uninhabited Desertas and Selvagens Islands, take a trip there and, in a few hours, you will get to know some of the rarest fauna and flora on the planet. The Desertas Islands are about 22 miles southwest of Funchal and have been made a biogenetic reserve, which, today, is that last Atlantic refuge of the monk seal, the rarest seal in the world.
