Just received an unexpected question from Joan S. (Cincinnati, US)
My husband and I are fed up. We are searching the web for places with no or low criminality. We came across your blog. Is this island Madera a safe place? We need to go away from all these VT killings, massacre and terror. Thanx Joan
Madeira is a friendly and safe island to visit and also to live. Extremities and terror (what you daily see on the news) are a rarity here and there is hardly any large crime ….. because â€œWhere are you going to go?â€. However every place can have its challenges of course …. including Madeira. The key is not putting yourself into compromising positions.
The island itself emits tranquility that affects everyone … well … almost everyone. Exceptions are sometimes the personnel in the holiday branch that are stressing to please the visitors of Madeira. But luckily they never get insane!
