  • Overview

    Given Madeira’s dearth of sandy beaches, it is easy to see why Porto Santo, 40km to the north of Madeira and reached by ‘plane or boat, is a popular escape for many Madeirans. Seemingly adrift in the Atlantic, Porto Santo is a tiny island, measuring just 6km by 11km, the golden sand beaches spread out in one long uninterrupted line for the best part of 10km. Beyond the beaches it remains largely undeveloped with only craggy volcanic peaks to break up the landscape.

    Vila Baleira, Porto Santo’s only settlement of note, was once home to Christopher Columbus. There are pleasant whitewashed buildings huddling under terracotta tiles and a main square with sufficient bars to see an evening out.
