In 2016, Madeira was again awarded four stars by the prestigious publication. It was also chosen as one of ten places you must visit before you die – according to National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Bradt guidebook – which means that Madeira is ranked among some of planet Earth’s most stunning locations such as Antarctica or Machu Picchu.
