Madeira: Best Island Destination in Europe

The World Travel Awards have once again awarded Madeira as the "Best Island Destination in Europe". Already consecutively awarded since 2016, the island is thus recognized by the distinction widely known as the Tourism Oscars. 

The Pearl of the Atlantic was also the winner of this prestigious and highly coveted award in 2013 and 2014, being only surpassed over the past 17 years in 2015, by the Italian region of Sardinia. It should be noted that the Azores region was also part of this year's nominees, making Portugal a recipient of two nominations in this category! 

Created in 1993, the World Travel Awards take place annually and aim to reward excellence in the most varied sectors of the tourism industry on a global scale. These distinctions prove once again how much the Madeira region represents an ideal, safe, diverse and globally recognized holiday destination!

Just as the name implies, these resorts were meticulously thought out to be much more than just a beach holiday destination! The idea is based on a combination of “Life” (Vida) and “Sea” (Mar), which is paired with a complete offer of services, which range from modern Spas to high-quality restaurant options!
