Porto Santo Island is one of Madeira's most popular resorts with its long sandy beaches, picturesque landscape, and rich marine life. It used to be a place for corsairs and fishermen. Visit the house where Christopher Columbus lived – now serves as a museum to learn more about this unusual place and its history. If you plan to take a ferry to Porto Santo from the main island bear in mind that some severe storms can occur from December to February that may stop ferry operations for a day or two.
