Madeira weather overview

The Madeira group of islands are an integral part of Portugal and lie around 720 kilometres (450 miles) off the coast of Morocco. The main island of Madeira is mountainous and volcanic, and indulges in Mediterranean climate tempered by the seas which surround it. You will rarely feel uncomfortably hot or unpleasantly cold on Madeira but expect to be rained on in the winter months, especially on higher ground.

On this island, the weather can change dramatically the higher up you go, so you can progress from bright sunshine on the coast to chilly fog and heavy rain within the course of a morning.

What to pack for Madeira weather

You should always supplement light clothing with warm cover-ups in summer and take medium to warm clothes for the winter months. Rain is sparse in mid summer (May to September) but take a raincoat at other times of the year.
