A beach from another world

Climate, nature, the therapeutic power of sand, gastronomy: Porto Santo is the best summer destination in Europe in 2022

For beach lovers, Porto Santo is a true paradise that leaves no one indifferent. Words fail to describe the magnitude of the beauty of the crystal-clear waters and the medicinal power of the 9 kilometres of golden sand. This is the perfect setting for those who need to disconnect, recharge their batteries, and take a break from the hectic life that current times demand.

This year, this refuge of the gods received the seal of Best Beach in Europe 2022 (European Best Beach 2022), awarded by the "European Best Destinations" tourism promotion platform. Porto Santo thus leads a list where there are dream beaches in countries widely known for their beauty, such as Italy, Greece, Spain, and France.

The golden island received this award in a vote recommended by travelers from around the world who praise factors such as the safety of the destination, climate, nature, well-being, outdoor sports, gastronomy, and even the ultimate rest.

The "therapeutic virtues" of the sand of Porto Santo, which are known worldwide, and the service provided by hotel units, put the destination on the map as the best beach destination for this summer. On the website, you can read that the Hotel Porto Santo & Spa, the Pestana Ilha Dourada Hotel & Villas, the Pestana Colombos Premium Club - All Inclusive, and also the Vila Baleira Porto Santo are highlighted for their "high quality" and proximity to the golden sand, worthy of a painting.

The golf course is also a must-see for this tourism promotion platform that considers this sports facility as one of the most beautiful in the world.

In fact, those who visit Porto Santo don't forget this paradise destination that has been conquering more and more travellers’ souls from all over the world. For Madeirans, the Golden Island is equally special, and although it's small in size, there are always hidden places to be discovered.
