Porto Santo, Madeira

Description

Porto Santo, Madeira

Porto Santo is a small island north of Madeira. It’s only 14 km long and 8 km wide. Main attraction is its 9km long beach on the south shore. Apart from the north, the island is rather flat. If you’re there anyway, you may climb some of its hills to enjoy the views.
