Islands of Portugal Highlights
The Islands of Portugal, including the Azores and Madeira Island, offer up a leisurely pace of life, dreamy lagoons, and friendly locals. In other words, they are ideal vacation spots.
Located in the Atlantic, the Azores are made up of nine islands (all of volcanic origin) that vary in size but all offer charming villages and serene environs. Madeira Island is famed for its wine, striking scenery and a New Year's Eve with spectacular fireworks.
