The estimate released by the Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM) points out that, “although overnight stays recorded in September 2022 were below the records of July and August of the same year - in which the threshold of one million was exceeded -, that value corresponds to the highest ever in the month of September and the third highest monthly record ever”.

The data for this sector represent year-on-year variations of over 32.4% in the number of guests and over 25% in overnight stays.

Also according to the DREM, there was a 16.1% increase in overnight stays from national residents, compared to the same month of the previous year, with 205,900 residents in Portugal visiting Madeira in September.

As for foreign visitors, the region received 754,400 that same month, which represented an increase of 27.7%.
