Spend your time among the movers and shakers in the sun of Porto Santo

At just three hours and 40 minutes direct from UK airports, the island – and all the pampering that comes with it – is enticingly close.

Palm trees and eternal sunshine grace the streets of sublime Vila Baleira, said to be the home of Christopher Columbus before his discovery of the New World. The site of the seaside town is said to have been discovered accidentally in the 1400s, but what you'll find today is a location that's definitely beautiful by design. That's summed up in its architecture, best seen in Pacos do Concelho – the town hall – and in the 15th century Matriz Church, which houses artworks by Max Romer and Martin Conrad. Every corner of the town has a story to tell, and the locals, museums and tours are happy to share them.

Living the high life in Porto Santo

Taking it easy is expected in Porto Santo. The golfing here, positioned among the rolling hills and landscapes, is acclaimed worldwide for its challenge and pacing. The wines you'll find on Porto Santo and neighbouring Madeira are one of the viticultural world's best kept secrets. Well known for their rich flavours, these tasty wines are best enjoyed on a balcony overlooking the sea.

This island also rewards those who appreciate its beauty, so try your hand at horseriding through the heartlands, sailing off the coast of Porto Santo Bay or treating yourself at a health spa. The dark clay and golden sand of the island are rumoured to hold rejuvenating properties.

Other popular holidays in Portugal

Portugal's prestige is easily found when you know where to look. For a more developed island experience, look to Madeira and see why its lush greenery and rolling coastlines give it the nickname The Floating Garden. You can also scout the Algarve's most prestigious retreats, as even this mainstream tourism hotbed has plenty to offer the discerning holidaymaker. We recommend Praia da Luz on that front for its style and serenity, although Porto Santo easily matches its secluded charms. Check out our Porto Santo travel guide to see the benefits of this beautiful island for yourself, and consider our favourite hotels below as potential places to rest your head.
