There is no better hiding place than Porto Santo. Remote from the island of Madeira, which is itself remote from the world, Porto Santo is a blissful sanctuary for those needing a break from the relentless demands of modern life. Wandering the shaded, wind-cooled, cobbled streets of Porto Santo’s main town, Vila Baleira, amid the terracotta roofed and green-shuttered dwellings, the universe shrinks to a manageable size. And as visitors and locals alike recharge their batteries - either stretched out on the golden sandy beach or sipping a cool drink in the shade of a palm tree - it’s easy to feel that one has somehow been accepted into a secret fraternity whose chief commitment is to a cheerful and relaxed life. Porto Santo is sunny, safe, quiet and unconditionally welcoming.
