When you're planning a trip to the island of Porto Santo
make sure to consider employing our Porto Santo Airport car hire

, west of Europe and Africa.
Some people consider Porto Santa
to be one extremely long beach with a bit of island attached to it, development has not been rampant, meaning that you'll find some hotels and restaurants but nothing extremely large, the place is still something of an 'undiscovered' resort.
This small nine kilometer long island can be easily reached by air from nearby locations such as Funchal
as well as from other locations in mainland Portugal as well as coastal Africa. Once you land here you can then employ our Porto Santa Airport car hire
services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.
The island is a great place for rest and relaxation in the Madeira
archipelago, as opposed to its sister islands, known for partying and other attractions, Porto Santo
is a a place known for the healing properties of its volcanic sands known to help with all sort of aches and ills.
Rest and relaxation doesn't mean however that there's nothing to do in Porto Santo, quite far from it, it's just that the atmosphere is somewhat different than on its sister islands. Golf enthusiasts will love the first-rate international golf course present on the island, and those who are into a more active type of vacation can engage the island's rugged interior; other activities include diving, horse-back riding, game fishing and many other things.
Interesting to mention about Porto Santo
is that its capital, Vila Baleira was home to that most famous of explorers, Christopher Columbus
and you can actually visit the man's house which is now a museum with exhibits related to the Portuguese discoveries of that era.
These have been just a few of the things that the island can offer, make sure to employ our Porto Santo car hire services in order to better explore this wonderful place in the sun.
