Is Madeira safe?

levadeiro/ April 19, 2007/ FAQ, Life, Madeira

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 Where are you going to go?.

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!
