Tourist Information

There are tourist information offices in Funchal and around the island. You can find their details here. Another source of useful information is MADEIRAWEB.


Before setting out on one of the recommended walking routes, check the official information here: routes can close at short notice owing to weather conditions or damage. There is also general guidance and further information from the official tourist website.


There are two local blogs that are updated daily and cover Madeira news in English, here and here. Madeira Weekly is available online and by weekly newsletter. The local newspapers, Jornal da Madeira and Diário de Notícias da Madeira are available in Portuguese only.

TV station RTP Madeira carries daily local bulletins (in Portuguese) usually at 7pm and 9pm.
