Great jmdias 2019-12-20 8:24

mariusz

this island is so far from my home, but I want to visit it someday, maybe when I will visit japan..
nice details of the nude landscape with the beautiful colors of the ground. lists of the most beautiful places are ever a mistake, because the attractions are different and the voters pay attention in their own preferences. for me the most beautiful island I knew was madeira, and I saw many places yet.

take care

jorge

Default To jmdias: Madeira

Hi Jorge,
Madeira is certainly much closer to me and therefore much cheaper.
What bothered me about it is that is was higher than Canaries and further into the cold Atlantic.
That means the temperatures are rarely hot. The landscapes are probably similar to Canaries but it is colder...
Great for hiking but less for enjoying the sun.
What was your impression? Have you been to Canaries?

no, I didn't visit canaries.
madeira has a mild climate, it is considered the best of the world because it is never hot or cold. the south side is tropical and the north side if subtropical. I guess madeira is much more green than canaries and its higher peak it is less than 1900 meters altitude.
. beaches aren't the main attraction of madeira, but there are nice ones in porto santo, the sister island, that is arid.

take care

jorge

Thank you Jorge. I think it confirms what I thought.
We like to change holiday destinations and the proximity is quite important factor which very much affects the price as well. So I have a feeling that sooner or later we will visit Madeira as well
Merry Christmas,
M
