The changing face of Madeira

Madeira like many other Portuguese holiday destinations changes over time. Until the Euro crisis Portugal was very much in favour with Brits as a holiday destination. The Island of Madeira is a beautiful garden holiday destination and despite economics changing, it remains desirable as long as the attitude of a minority of the local people does deter people.

Holidaymakers expect a warm welcome and to be treated fairly and honestly. Any negative experiences are related back home and such bad press does not enhance Madeira's reputation as a holiday destination. There is also plenty of competition from the Canaries which offer a slightly warmer climate, whale and dolphin watching etc.
