Overlooking 9km of uninterrupted, blissful beach, the Hotel Torre Praia is one of Portugal’s true hidden gems.
The small Madeiran island of Porto Santo continues to remain under most people’s radar. As bathers scramble for space on most other European beaches, there’s a different approach here: no rush, no stress – space is at a premium and this beach is never crowded.
Overlooking these idyllic sands is the Hotel Torre Praia – the beach is it’s doorstep, and a leisurely stroll brings you from room, to beach, to ocean. The hotel has sixty-six balcony rooms with garden and sea views to choose from, air-conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout. There’s also an outdoor pool and sun terrace, two restaurants and a beach-front bar – the Restaurants Salinas has a traditional Portuguese menu in the evenings and there’s a more relaxed pizzeria open throughout the day.
The centre of Porto Santo’s little capital Vila Baleira is a two-minute walk away, with a nice selection of shops, restaurants and café bars where a warm welcome is guaranteed.
