Porto Santo Island
Porto Santo is the smallest inhabited island of the Madeira archipelago. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean, in the extreme southwest of Europe and only 500 km from the African coast and 1000 km from Europe, an hour and a half flight from the city of Lisbon. Discovered in 1418 by the Portuguese navigators, this archipelago is formed by the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo and also by the uninhabited islands of the Selvagens and Desertas.
The hospitality and friendliness of the population, the mild climate throughout the year, the spectacular uncontaminated landscapes, along with the richness and variety of natural, historical and cultural resources, are just some of the reasons to discover this paradise.
Health and wellbeing go hand in hand on this magnificent beach, given that, in addition to the translucent waters, sand has rare therapeutic properties. It is very soft, light and little abrasive and is composed mainly of calcium carbonate, in the form of calcite, which gives it very particular thermal properties.
