Porto Santo Island is known as “the” beach in Madeira archipelago. With 11 kilometers of golden sand facing a suggestive blue sea, Porto Santo has been attracting beach lovers for a long time. But there is more to it than sunbathing and swimming in the sea. Accessible by boat, for those coming from Madeira, or by plane, Porto Santo has some interesting landscaping contrasts. The extensive beach shore on the south, where Vila Baleira (the main urbanisation), is located, contrasts with the north coast, of huge cliffs that fall steeply to the sea.
