The island of Madeira lies 853 kms southwest of Portugal and is the mountain peak of an enormous volcanic mass. Madeira is both an island and the name of the autonomous archipelago to which it belongs. The island of Madeira has the largest land mass of the archipelago, some 450 square kms.

The only other inhabited island in the Madeira archipelago is Porto Santo, about 40 kms northeast of the main island. Visitors can simply visit Madeira or conveniently combine a trip to visit Lisbon and the rest of Portugal as well. The daily flight from Lisbon to Madeira takes just 90 minutes on the Portuguese national carrier TAP, which then flies on to Porto Santo.

In Madeira, planes arrive at the Aeroporto de Madeira, east of the capital city Funchal, at Santa Cruz. The airport is serviced regularly by TAP from the Portuguese mainland, as well as by numerous charter flights that connect Madeira with most major European cities. Both TAP and British Airways have non-stop flights from London to Funchal, with a flight time of 4 hours.

From the airport, taxis into Funchal's city centre take just 20 minutes. There is also a bus run by the Sociedad de Automibiles de Madeira that takes visitors to the city centre. The bus can, however, take up to 1 hour depending on the number of stops, but is very affordable.

Cruise ships sometimes anchor at the island of Madeira, but there is no regular passenger boat service to Madeira from the mainland of Portugal.
