With its isolated location, this secluded Portuguese outpost has been a travel corridor staple, and makes a perfect post lockdown escape.
As holiday destinations go, quarantine-free Madeira feels gloriously appropriate at the moment. Regular customers love the beautiful botanical gardens and wild untouched landscapes. Its old world-charm has great appeal too. For an unforgettable experience, encourage them to take a private escorted drive to Arieiro Peak to watch the sunrise from above the clouds. Just one of this magical island’s many hidden gems.
