- Madeira All inclusive holidays
Tourism is a crucial source of income for Madeira, which is officially a region of Portugal but is actually located around 250 miles north of the Canary Islands. As such, when you take cheap all-inclusive Madeira holidays, you not only get great accommodation, food, entertainment and friendly service, you also help to do your bit to support the island's inhabitants as a whole. It's a perfect partnership between holidaymakers and those working in the tourist trade, which means you can always expect to come home happy from a vacation on the island.
A home from home for tourists
Madeira's tourist-friendly atmosphere is apparent in its all-inclusive hotels and resorts, which have transformed many of its former fishing villages. For example, head down to the beach at Calheta and you might be surprised to find that it does not face out to sea, but that the sand is actually in two sections facing one another across an artificial U-shaped harbour. This makes it an even better option for families, as the sheltered waters within the harbour offer greater protection for weaker swimmers, as well as the unusual visual effect of swimming within an enclosed space among moored boats.
What to snack on in Madeira
You probably won't find Madeira cake in Madeira, unless it's there just for tourists - the popular British snack is named after the wine, which is in turn named after the island. However, for foodies there is the local baked taste sensation called Bolo de Mel, a soft, sticky honey cake made with molasses. If you drink alcohol, you'll probably want to try the fortified wine for which Madeira is famous, and depending on the terms of your all-inclusive holidays in Madeira, this might be part of the ticket price too.
What else is included?
The exact list of items included in your all-inclusive holidays to Madeira will vary, so if there's something you particularly want to be covered by the ticket price, make sure to check before you book. Alcohol is not always freely available - or there may be an overall limit, or a surcharge on anything more than single measures - so be aware of the rules for your hotel and stick to them to avoid any extra costs. Other than that, you'll usually find at least your transport, accommodation, main meals and non-alcoholic drinks are covered in full.
Why choose an all-inclusive holiday to Madeira?
