Praia do Porto Santo, Porto Santo Island

Blanketed by golden sand and surrounded by shallow waters, Praia do Porto Santo represents its namesake island's premier beach. Get ready to soak up some rays, hit the surf, or simply enjoy the rugged landscape of Porto Santo. You'll find that while the beach stretches 9 km (5.6 mi), it's actually several different, distinct areas in one. If you're feeling hungry, you can grab a snack or refreshing drink from one of the many cafes and snack bars just off the water. Bathrooms and showers make it easy to rinse off without a problem after a dip.

  • Unforgettable experience, long beach of soft sand and golden. During the month of March, beautiful scenery. with fewer tourists visited.

  • Is arguably the best beach in the world, where the greatest balance between quality of the sands, which are medical, cleaning and temperature throughout the year. With little thermal variation around the average of 18 to 22 degrees.

  • 9-km long yellow beach is the main attraction of Porto Santo. And no wonder. People almost no, sea blue, holiday paradise. In particular, that the Beach also delicious to eat or just drink wine. I recommend a beautiful view of the beaches from the end of the Ponta da Calheta, you will not regret.
