Porto Santo Line - Porto Santo Map



Porto Santo is one of the islands in Madeira Archipelago. It is situated at a distance of 50 Km from Madeira Island. The "Golden Island", as it is also known, is 11 Km long and 6 km wide. It was discovered in 1418 by João Gonçalves Zarco, Tristão Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo. According to history, it was given this name as it had provided a port of shelter from a bad storm. Porto Santo boasts long beaches of fine yellow sand known for therapeutic properties, as well as its calm warm blue sea , with temperatures ranging between 18°C and 22°C. The local climate is stable and dry and temperatures do not vary much between the seasons, which makes this a very pleasant place to go to the beach all year round. Besides this magnificent and relaxing 9 km stretch of beach, the visitor will be able to choose from several water sports, horseback riding, golf, walks along foot paths, enjoying the island’s arid landscapes and taking in the atmosphere and the true hospitality of the local population.
