Porto Santo ferry port in Porto Santo Island connects you with Funchal in Madeira Islands with a choice of up to 9 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Porto Santo to Funchal crossing is from 2 hours 15 minutes and the crossing is operated by Porto Santo Line.
The island is small enough to be covered entirely by foot, which is the most common option due to the close proximity of the resorts and restaurants.
For anyone who enjoys a spot of sunbathing, Porto Santo is the perfect holiday destination. The entire island is basically just one long beach, with hotels, bars and restaurants dotted along the coastline. The relative lack of attractions means the island is often overlooked in terms of tourism, making it the perfect place to escape the stress of modern day life and while away the hours under the scorching sun.
The incredibly tranquil atmosphere and empty beaches may suggest an island with nothing to do, though there is enough to keep you entertained for more than a few days. The golf course is highly regarded and for a more leisurely afternoon, copious challenging walking trails decorate the landscape, affording wonderful views of the surrounding mountainside. After a long day in the unrelenting heat, enjoy some of the local cuisine at the fine quality restaurants, usually serving seafood as the day’s specialty.
Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, Porto Santo is a Portuguese Island laying 43 kilometres northeast of Madeira. The only ferry route departing the port is to Funchal lasting just over two hours and is supplied by Porto Santo Line.
