#6 of 19 in Things to do in Porto Santo Island
Landmark Tourist Spot
Have a relaxing time at Fonte Da Areia, a quiet and serene place surrounded by sand dunes and cliffs on one, and the clear blue ocean on the other side. If you're imaginative, you can join other visitors who try to decipher the strange nature-made shapes of the cliffs, or you can just snap as many photos as you can. Although there are no bars or restaurants here, you can always bring some food and have a picnic by the sea.
