A mere 40 km away from the island of Madeira, two and a half hours by boat or, if preferred, just 15 minutes by plane, lies one of the most beautiful and idyllic islands in the world: Porto Santo!
If you believe this to be fanciful exaggeration, then why not come and see for yourself!
The soft and golden sand, renowned for its therapeutic properties, bathed by a warm and crystal clear sea, a dry and stable climate all year round, are but some of its attributes.
It is possible to indulge in every type of outdoor sporting activity on the island of Porto Santo.
