Satisfaction surveys carried out in 2018 on tourists visiting Madeira revealed a high degree of satisfaction relating to five events held between June and December.

According to Paula Cabaço, Madeira’s regional secretary of tourism, the events surveyed were the Atlantic Festival, the Wine Festival, the Columbus Festival (Porto Santo), the Nature Festival and the Christmas and New Year’s Eve Festival.

Satisfaction results obtained from the Nature Festival were the highest, in the order of 6.5, on a scale of 1 (satisfied) and 7 (completely satisfied), she said, adding that it is also the most recommended (98 percent) by tourists.


Cabaço pointed out that a new event will be introduced in July 2020 linked to the sugar cane route.

“We continue to invest heavily in the area of tourist entertainment as these events have a great economic return for the region”.
