The Madeira Islands Open is a men's professional golf tournament on the European Tour, played on the Madeira Islands in Portugal. It was founded in 1993 and is often the first event of the season played in Europe, after the season has spent the northern winter in Asia, Australasia and South Africa.

The tournament has one of the smallest prize funds on the tour (600,000 in 2013), and few of the tour's top players take part. Beginning in 2011, it is dual-ranked with the Challenge Tour. It was played opposite the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2011 and 2013.

It is one of two European Tour events currently staged in Portugal each year, the other being the Portugal Masters. It is hosted at Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra (1993–2008, 2012-) and was hosted at Porto Santo Golfe from 2009 to 2011.
