This volcanic, tunnel filled island half way between Portugal and the African coast is criss-crossed by irrigation ditches that are a marvel of physics and a coastline that is spectacular. For true enjoyment, skip the cruise ships, fly in and stay for a while.

Madeira is a garden.
Its volcanic origin creates an awesome landscape with the peak right at the centre of the island. If you enjoy a bit of a challenge, the island is cover by paths called the Levadas, where you will be amazed by the views. They are hard to get to in case of emergency but you wont get lost if you stay on the path, also they have phone network even in the middle of the wilderness (take a torch, compact rain coat, extra food and water, good anti slip hiking boots).
Madeira also offers great hotels and resorts, most of them in Funchal.
You have sea access from most of them. This is a must since you don't have natural sandy beeches there.
Recently a vast net of roads and tunnels was built and has made it easy to travel around the island, so make sure you get a car. there are all sorts of tourist attractions, like sailing with dolphins on a replica of a Portuguese Nau, or sliding down a road on a "basket"slay. Overall you will have an awesome time.
Plus the food is great.
