About Porto Santo

Porto Santo is a superb island known for its stunning beach, warm waters, and its rich history. It is also a Biosphere Reserve of UNESCO.

You can explore the island by car, jeep, foot, horseback, boat, or mountain bike.

Other activities include guided tours of the island and the city, golf, kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling.

Among the places to visit, we recommend the city centre, the fabulous beaches and natural pools, the incredible viewpoints, and the small museums such as Christopher Columbus’s house.

Porto Santo Sandy Beach
The Porto Santo beach of over 9 kilometres of yellow sand is Portugal’s Seven Natural Wonders, and the World Travel Awards nominated it for the "Best Beach Destination in Europe" in 2021.
Scientific experiments tested that the therapeutic properties of its sands are suitable for anyone suffering from rheumatic and orthopaedic afflictions. We believed that it is because of the microfossils, fragments of calcareous algae, mollusc shells and other marine fossils.
