Coworking and remote work from the Portuguese island of Madeira

The island of Madeira is a unique place to work. Its semi0tropical location means that it experiences cooler summers than other similar locations nearby in Africa and Europe. The lush greenery, combined with convenient accessibility from the mainland, makes it an ideal spot for digital nomads and remote workers alike. There are several coworking spaces on the island that either specialize in remote working or have remote working as a key part of their offer.

Here is our list of the best coworking spaces in Madeira, Portugal.

Amparo Workspace

Amparo Workspace is one of the newest coworking spaces on the island of Madeira. It offers a modern and comfortable co-working space with good access to green areas and nature. Amparo’s location in Machico makes it an excellent choice for remote workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who want to work on the east side of the island in Machico, but also want an alternative to working from home.

Cabeço Alto Farm

Cabeço Alto is one of the most unique coworking spaces on the island of Madeira. It’s also one of the most remote, as it is located on a sheep and cattle farm that is about an hour and a half drive from Funchal. Cabeço Alto is a great choice for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and work in a more remote location. It’s also a great choice for those who want to engage in activities like hiking and horse riding at the same time as working. Cabeço Alto has a fully stocked kitchen, wireless internet, and a relaxation room.

Cowork Funchal

Located in the capital city of Madeira, Cowork Funchal is a great choice for any remote workers who want to work in Funchal but also have access to a larger remote working community. The space is not only in the center of Funchal, but it’s also only a short walk from Madeira’s biggest and best coworking space for remote workers: MyOffice Online.

MyOffice Online

MyOffice Online is one of the more formal coworking spaces on Madeira. It offers a large and beautiful coworking space in the São Martinho neighborhood of Funchal that is ideal for both remote workers and entrepreneurs who may want to book a dedicated private or virtual office (mailing address and mail forwarding). The focus of this space is on its virtual office services rather than a coworking-first setup.

MadeiraWork

MadeiraWork is a coworking space that is more focused on entrepreneurs and small business owners than remote workers. However, it is also open to remote workers as well. While it is located in Funchal, it offers a more unique and alternative coworking space for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Working Space - Digital Nomads Madeira - Ponta Do Sol

Located on the southern coast of Madeira in Ponta Do Sol, this coworking space is one of the most remote on the island. It’s also one of the newest, having opened in 2019. The space is run by Digital Nomads Madeira, an organization that specifically caters to building digital nomad communities. The people behind the organization have a lot of experience with remote working, and as such, they put a big focus on community and social connections in Ponta Do Sol.

Other Things to Note

You should also keep in mind that Madeira is an island. This means that you’ll need to fly there, either from mainland Portugal or from somewhere else in Europe. If you choose to go during the winter, you'll need to keep in mind that the climate is significantly less warm and sunny than you might expect given how close it is to North Africa.
