The last issue of 2022 is out now!

Read the latest Essential Madeira Islands issue here!

This is an edition with a festive feel! We celebrate 17 years of uninterrupted publication of Essential Madeira Islands, as well as the most celebrated period in Madeira, Christmas and New Year's Eve. But this edition is also a celebration because Madeira has once again been elected the World’s Leading Island Destination, at the World Travel Awards, and was elected the Best Cruise Port in Europe at the World Cruise Awards.

Leafing through our pages you can learn more about the iconic Farmers’ Market in Funchal, a must-see for locals and visitors alike. But we also show you another important building, the Baltazar Dias Municipal Theatre.

We further remind you that Madeira maintains two restaurants with stars in the prestigious Michelin Guide, in a year that comes to an end by breaking all tourist records. A year in full!

Thank you for being our reader. We expect to continue counting on you in 2023.
