Madeira is only 30 miles long and 13 miles at its widest, with a coast line of around 80 miles, it is easy to see why it is popular with both fisherman and divers. It has one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe the Cabo Girao, a small sub tropical rain forest and forests in the northern region of the island that are designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
