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.  Madeira 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 beautiful drone video by contributor Rasmus-HP.

The Portuguese island of Madeira is known as much for its interior mountains as it is for its coastline.  Like the island itself, the mountains of Madeira are geological infants, having been formed by a series of eruptions on the Atlantic Ocean floor beginning "only" about five million years ago.  The main mountain chain here runs down the center of the island, reaching peak altitudes of about 1.85k meters (around 6.1k ft.) above sea level.  Checkout the beautiful Madeira Mountains from above in this drone video.
