Introduction to Madeira Island
From the lofty sea cliffs of Cabo Girão to the volcanic rock pools of Porto Moniz, Madeira is a Portuguese island rich with natural beauty and photographic opportunities.
Located off the northwest coast of Africa, roughly midway between the Canary Islands and the Portuguese mainland, Madeira had long been on my bucket-list of islands to visit.
This series of travel photographs of Madeira were taken over seven days in May 2019 and show the botanical gardens and rare blooms of the flower festival, the incredible cliffs of Cabo Girão, remote waterfalls, cool street art in the capital of Funchal, and the natural swimming pools of Porto Moniz.
There is something very special about this island. I saw beautiful flowers that I never knew existed, went swimming every day, and maybe over indulged in one too many Pastéis de Nata. The subtropical climate and sunny weather was rather perfect too.
If you’re thinking of booking a trip to Madeira, I highly recommend you do so, you won’t regret it. There is so much to explore in Madeira that I’ll definitely be returning with my camera to see what else I can find in the future.
