With a lovely golden sandy beach on its doorstep, the Torre Praia Hotel on the island of Porto Santo is the ideal hotel for anyone looking for relaxation and sunshine.
The sixty-six rooms rooms all have balconies, air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a safe and cable TV, and there’s free WiFi throughout the building. The hotel has are two restaurants and a beach-front bar – the Restaurants Salinas has a traditional Portuguese menu and there’s a more relaxed pizzeria which is open throughout the day. There’s also an outdoor pool and sun terrace, which lead to the the real highlight of your stay: the 9km long beach which stretches from Ponta de Calheta to the hotel (and beyond). This isn’t your typical European beach: it doesn’t get busy as there just aren’t many people on the island. The centre of Porto Santo’s little capital Vila Baleira is a two-minute walk away – there’s a nice selection of shops, restaurants, cafébars with a lovely sociable atmosphere in the evenings.
We prefer small friendly hotels in beautiful locations, with spacious rooms and excellent local restaurants right on your doorstep. The Torre Praia Hotel's location ticks all those boxes.
The beach is obviously the main attraction of this little island, and it's a great place to take lessons in windsurfing or standup paddleboarding. You could also explore the island on on of our jeep tours, or you could hire mopeds or bikes to explore at your leisure. Inland, Porto Santo also has an eighteen hole Par 72 golf course, designed by Seve Ballesteros.
