Madeira Islands

In the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from the centre of Europe, we find the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo. Madeira island is 310 miles from the African coast and 620 miles from the European continent, which is the equivalent of a 1 hour 30 minute flight from Lisbon.

The archipelago is famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate. The Madeira Islands are just a short trip from Europe, to a destination where you can combine holidays on the beach, in the mountains or in the city.  Madeira and Porto Santo are the ideal places to relax and restore the balance of mind and body that you need to face the stress of daily life.

Madeira island has recently positioned itself as an exceptional electronic business hub and is now an ideal location for companies in the field of telecommunications, e-business and B2C transactions with low direct and indirect taxes.
madJET has taken the initiative and based its headquarters on the island which now serves as a central hub for its area of operations which includes the Canary Islands, the Azores, mainland Portugal and Northwestern Africa.

Madeira is also very popular 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. It is no less well known for its year-round outdoor sports.

The island’s mild climate and a water temperature that never goes below 17ºC mean that you can be on the go all the time. 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.
