We certainly have something to celebrate in Madeira, recently elected “Word’s Leading Island Destination 2016” by the World Travel Awards. But this isn’t the first time we’ve been awarded. In 2015 Madeira was elected “Word’s Leading Island Destination” and in 2013, 2014 and 2016 Madeira was distinguished “Europe’s Leading Island Destination”.
The WTA award is known as the most prestigious in the travel and tourism industry and recognizes the best examples of good practices in the sector. As you can imagine, this is challenging because it is at the international level, and we always find strong opponents, such as Bali, Indonesia, Barbados, Maldives, Mauritius, Cook Islands, Crete, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Sardinia, Seychelles Sicily and Zanzibar.
“Madeira stands out for its natural beauties, for the hospitality of its people and for the excellence of its service, not only with accommodation but also with complementary activities” – Eduardo Jesus, Regional Secretary for Economy, Tourism & Culture.
