Nicknamed as the 'Floating Garden', Madeira is a blanket of bougainvillea and lilac Jacaranda trees that ensure the island has a technicolour landscape! Aside from this, Madeira has a zig-zagging network of mountain trains - known as Levadas - making it the perfect escape for any keen walkers, with these delivering spectacular panoramic ocean views. Plus if you love marine life, our whale and dolphin watching tour is a must!
If you are seeking a sunshine escape during the bleak winter months in the UK then look no further than Madeira! The warmer climate and spectacular coastline, offers the single traveller plenty of rocky coves and pebbly bays to explore – perfect for any walking holiday. Surfers meanwhile have identified Madeira as the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’, with its impressive waves giving the tropical islands some competition.
The capital city Funchal is a popular city break destination which is made up of colonial buildings, sleepy squares and basalt churches. Whilst here, you must indulge in the many wine bars and family-run tavernas with your fellow solo travellers. As Madeira is famous for its delicious wine, it would be a crime to visit this wonderful island without a taste! Madeira is also home to an abundance of wildlife and a whale & dolphin watching tour is an attraction not to be missed. Dotted with pretty marinas lined with cafés and restaurants that specialise in seafood – Madeira is an island waiting to be explored by the single traveller.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
