Nine kilometres of the most beautifully manicured beach ever! The soft beach sand is therapeutic as is the sea air! The locals respect their praia and keep it clean but the ocean tide does its job too.

Without a doubt this beach lives up to its reputation as one of the finest in Europe, if not further afield.

Just a beautiful long sandy beach! One of the best I’ve been to in the world. From Calheta in the south where you can see the sunset to the main town it is just soft golden sand. You can hire sunbed and shade in parts.

9 km long sandy beach with crystal clear water. Some areas are guarded and offer showers and lockers. The beach is so long that its never crowded so it is perfect for a relaxing sunny day

Porto Santo is kind of remote so the beach was quite empty when we went. It lacks some decent beach clubs but in the other hand if you are looking for calm you will be happy.

Warm water, fine white sand and 9 km long. The tranquility of the beach makes it impossible to resist a long and calm walk along the beach. It is essential to use sunscreen factor 50+

We spent 10 great days: fantastic weather, warm calm water, soft sand. It’s not always like this - and I have been visiting Porto Santo for so many years I have seen it all- but this August it was perfect
