Holidays to Machico
Nestled by a beautiful azure bay on the islands of Madeira, a Portuguese archipelago famous for its fortified wine, Machico is a good destination for those who are looking for good, authentic food and drink as well as sun, sand and ocean views. The archipelago was an important port during the Age of Discovery, and so the area is rich with history dating back to the 15th Century and beyond.
