Summer Holidays to Porto Santo
Porto Santo Sun Holidays Review and Guide
A Porto Santo summer holiday affords you a tranquility that's a true escape from urban living. One of the least developed of all European resorts; holidays here are 100% relaxation. One of the islands in the same archipelago, Porto Santo couldn't be any more different to its neighbor Madeira. Madeira is all forested volcanic hills and pebble beaches whereas on a summer holiday to Porto Santo you can enjoy 8kms of golden sand and rolling dunes. Other than palm trees and vineyards there's no other greenery.
It might be very small but it's significant. On a summer holiday to Porto Santo you can visit the museum dedicated to Christopher Columbus in one of his former houses as this is the island where he met and married his wife. There are rare maps and engravings included amongst the exhibits.
One of the recent developments that havemade a Porto Santo more attractive to those looking for more than a Portuguese flavoured retreat is the huge golf course on which several hundred players can play a round at the same time. Other sporty type activities include walking the interior of the island to appreciate the strangely lunar landscape so if you are taking a summer holiday to Porto Santo remember to pack those hiking boots.
If that all sounds too energetic take the island minibus tour or just lie back on the beach and soak up the sun then spend the lovely evenings of a Porto Santo summer holiday in laid back comfortable restaurants that serve tasty local food.
