Madeira Island: 4K Drone Footage

Rasmus H-P

While Madeira is an archipelago, the vast majority of the land area and population of this region of Portugal is on the main island which bears the same name.  The island is merely the top of a giant volcano on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.  The island is about 22 km at its widest (about 14 mi) and it has a total shoreline of about 90 km (a bit under 60 mi.).  The island's volcanic origins makes for some spectacular geological scenery, as you'll see in this drone video by Rasmus-HP.

Exploring Madeira


Contributor KasperReisner created this amazing drone video of the Portuguese island of Madeira.  Actually a main island plus a small group of islands, it lies almost due west from the Moroccan city of Marakkesh.  Its volcanic origins and rare fauna and flora have turned it into a magnet for outdoor-seeking tourists looking for somewhat off-the-beaten-path destinations.  Enjoy the aerial views of the magnificent coastlines and lush green interior of this volcanic wonder in the Atlantic Ocean!

Lexern created this beautiful aerial mini-tour of Madeira, an island territory of Portugal which is located off the coast of North Africa.  The video opens with an impressive shot of Funchal, the main island's primary city, which is also capital of the Madeira administrative region (one of the seven into which Portugal is divided).  The city lies on the island's southern coast.  From there, you'll get a look at some spots on the interior of the island, which was formed by a giant stratovolcano on the ocean floor.

Madeira, Portugal (Mavic 2 Pro)


Check out this beautiful aerial video of the mountainous interior of Portugal's island of Madeira, which was shot with a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone.  The island is actually the visible tip of a giant volcano rising off of the North Atlantic Ocean floor.  The volcano created a series of peaks which cover most of the interior of the island, which has a land area of just under 750 square km (a bit under 250 square miles).  Its highest peak is Pico Ruivo, which has an elevation of about 1.85k meters (just over 6.1k ft.).
