One of Madeira’s main attractions is its luxuriant native vegetation, with many endemisms that combine tropical features with Mediterranean ones, which will leave you overwhelmed by the color palette and range of scents you’ll find.
Madeira Natural Park, created in 1982, is classified as a biogenetic reserve. Here, in an area covering around 2/3 of the island, you can find unique flora and fauna. If you decide to visit this reserve, you will find much to explore. After starting with the Madeira Natural Park, don’t miss the natural reserves of the Desertas and Savage Islands, followed by a swim in the marine reserves of Garajau, Sítio da Rocha do Navio and the Porto Santo Network of Protected Marine Areas.
