Porto santo island

If one thing Porto Santo is is a very popular holiday destination in Portugal, but in Spain it is quite unknown. Perhaps it is because this is primarily a destination of sun and sand and in Spain it is not that we have scarce places. This is probably because there are not many connections but they pass through at least one stop in Portugal. Porto Santo has one of the very best beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. It's not crowded in the summer months, so it is a very good place to visit, especially if combined with the nearby island Madeira. Madeira come precisely from the bulk of visitors to Porto Santo, many of them in packages that offer full-day visits to the island. Aside from the fantastic beach, perhaps the other noteworthy point is that Porto Santo was home to Christopher Columbus, before the launch of the adventure of the Americas. The house of Christopher Columbus is actually there in the city and is now a restored museum that you can visit. You can get to Porto Santo either by plane (20 minutes from Madeira) or boat. One or two boats leave every day, and take 2.5 hours to arrive.
