Averages for Madeira in March
Madeira, lying just off the Moroccan coast, has something for everyone, whether you’re after a beach, mountain or city holiday. It’s no wonder this small Portuguese island attracts one million tourists each year.
March temperatures are similar to those in January and February at around 13 to 19.5 degrees Celsius. Rainfall is low and shouldn’t deter travellers from visiting Madeira at this time.
As March is still classified as winter in Madeira, the ocean is often a lot choppier than in the summer months so March provides the perfect opportunity to hit the waves. The best waves on the island are found on the north shore and the area of São Vicente is an ideal spot.
If the rain does make an appearance, visitors can take a 30 minute guided tour of the underground passages of the São Vicente Caves, which were formed following a volcanic eruption. The caves are actually 900,000 year old lava tubes that are so large visitors can walk through without needing to bend down - a brilliant story to recount to friends and family back home.
The nearby Hotel Solar de Boaventura, located just six miles along the coastline in the town of Boaventura, is a true bargain with rooms from just £28 per night. The onsite minigolf keeps guests entertained before a dinner of freshly caught fish (for which Madeira is famous) is served in the hotel’s restaurant.
