What to expect

There's an island just 50km away from Madeira with beaches that stretch for miles and warm, turquoise waters that look too good to be true. It's the tiny island of Porto Santo, and this tour will have you hopping on a plane to explore this enigmatic place in just one day.

It's a quick 25-minute flight from Funchal before you'll be off discovering the island of Porto Santo. An introductory bus tour will be first, where you'll skirt below the jagged peaks of the north and edge through areas dotted with windmills that were once used for agriculture. During the journey, you'll head to viewpoints with all-encompassing panoramas of Porto Santo's distinctive landscape, especially the idyllic beaches of the south.

Lunch will then be served at a beachside restaurant before you're dropped off in the main town of Vila Baleira. Visit Christopher Columbus's House or take yourself off to the fine sandy beach for a swim during some free time. Afterwards, you'll be picked up in time to catch your flight back to Funchal.
