Porto Santo is located 50 Kms. north-east of Funchal.

The island is amazingly different from the island of Madeira. There is almost no vegetation at all. The southern coast is bordered by a 9 Kms. long beach with golden, soft sand.

The temperature in the sea is 18-23 ºC (64,4-73,4 ºF) throughout the year.

Tourists seek to Porto Santo to enjoy a relaxing holiday of tranquility. The isolation permits the island to keep some of the old traditions of the first settlers.

Porto Santo is only 14 Kms long and 5 Kms wide. It's a lovely island, and while you're in the neighbourhood, a paradise not to be missed.
