Fireworks in Madeira on New Year’s Eve

Fireworks in Madeira on New Year’s Eve

Fireworks in Madeira on New Year’s Eve: here is what we are going to talk about today, with the winter just days away from now knocking at our doors. And while we’re not necessarily very eager to welcome more cold in, we have to admit that we do get more than a bit excited about the holidays, the highlight of the season.

One might not imagine it, but Madeira, an island far in the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the best places to spend New Year’s Eve. And the pleasantly warm weather is just one of the reasons for the island’s merry appeal. The second and probably most important reason is the awesome fireworks display that happens every year on the night between the years.
The fireworks show takes hours and happens in Funchal, which is the capital city of the island of Madeira. The city, a charming combination of rustic island charm and European air, with the Portuguese cultural legacy transpiring in the architecture and the cosmopolitan air of the suburbs. It is a charming small world of contrasts… and one night a year, it is set on fire (figuratively speaking, of course)!

The fireworks display in Madeira is one of the most beautiful and popular in the world.

Many say it rivals with that in great metropoles such as New York, London and Sydney. Because, if you ask me, Madeira has a bigger heart than so many of the other places. It is a unique place and the main attraction is to watch the dark skies come alive from a boat slowly swaying on the gentle waves of the ocean, close to the sea.

So if you want something new and romantic for this year’s New Year’s Eve, here’s your chance: a boat trip on the ocean in Madeira. Be sure you book your plane tickets, lodging, but also your Madeira car hire and your Madeira airport transfers well in advance.
