Porto Santo is the smaller of the inhabited islands of the Madeira Archipelago. It lies in the Atlantic Ocean, at the South-western tip of Europe, about 500 km from the coast of Africa and 1000 km from Continental Europe. It takes around 1hr 30 min to fly from Lisbon to Porto Santo Island.
First discovered back in 1418, by Portuguese sailors, this archipelago is formed by the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo as well as the uninhabited Selvagens and Desertas Islands. The friendliness and hospitality of its locals, the mild climate all year around, the spectacular unspoilt landscapes and the richness and variety of the natural, historical and cultural resources are just some of the reasons why you should discover this paradise yourself.
A golden isle, washed by turquoise sea and where peace and quiet reign supreme, is all you need for a truly relaxing holiday.
Inviting sea temperatures, 9km of golden sandy beaches, a stable climate and stunning sunsets make Porto Santo your first port of call for peace and tranquillity.
The Thalassotherapy health clinic uses a unique combination of treatments to relieve stress, and maximises the therapeutic qualities of the golden sand and the pure Atlantic waters to their best effect.
Go for walks in Porto Santo to refresh your spirit, or play on the new golf course where you will discover unique challenges while playing amidst breathtaking scenery.
