A golden isle, washed by turquoise seas and where peace and quiet reign supreme, is all you need for a truly relaxing holiday. The safety, the warm welcome from the local people, the pleasures of nature hidden on the beautiful sandy beach and its tranquil waters make Porto Santo first among equals. This Atlantic island boasts 9 km fine golden sands ideal for sunbathing and swimming.
Health and wellness go hand in hand on this magnificent beach as, in addition to its crystalline waters, its sands have rare therapeutic properties. The sand is soft, fine and smooth and consists mainly of calcium carbonate in the form of calcite, which has special thermal qualities. Vila Baleira can tell stories and legends of the distant and recent past, like the Museum House where Christopher Columbus once lived. The primitive beauty of the landscape enchants everyone that walks along the footpaths or rides a bike through the island's trails.
