This private tour will reveal an unexpected surprise.
This island is a well-kept secret, I believe it is the most unknown and undiscovered European resort, very popular for this archipelago inhabitants, mainly the Madeirans. Madeira and Porto Santo island complement each other. One is luxurious green and hilly, the other golden and flat with a 9 km long yellow sand beach, surrounded by countless shades of blue. Amongst locals, we say in a joke that the only thing missing to this island is a bridge connecting them.
In this tour, we will discover all the spots you shouldn’t miss. Adding to this, we will get to know the history, curiosities, drink and eat what is typical, walk on the beach, hike, and of course, swim in the turquoise blue Atlantic waters, and a lot more.
For a small island, Porto Santo has a lot of history, where themes like Sugar Cane, Christopher Columbus, Piracy, Wine, dragon blood will get together!
