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.
