The island of Madeira is affectionately known as the ‘Floating Garden’ and the vibrancy and colour that you’ll see the moment you step foot on the island will prove to you why. You’ll feel like you’re in paradise as you settle down on spotless beaches, looking out onto the tranquil, turquoise ocean. Madeira is full of sleepy villages, where friendly locals will show you authentic cuisine and hospitality like no other.
It is recommended that you receive a Hepatitis A jab before you visit Madeira as there is a risk of catching the infection through contaminated food or water.
Most hotels in Madeira will also have their own private swimming pools. It’s essential that these pools are properly maintained by hotel staff. However, this isn’t always the case and cryptosporidium can be contracted as a result of this. If water is ingested that has been contaminated by animal or insect faecal matter then this can cause infection, with symptoms ranging from diarrhoea to severe stomach cramp. Sometimes a guest can go for days showing no symptoms at all and unwittingly spread the infection to other holidaymakers.
