It may seem strange, but many people don’t know that Madeira Island is part of the Madeira Archipelago. Besides it, there is also the Porto Santo Island (easily visited, either by boat or by plane), besides the Desertas and Selvagens (these, natural reserves accessed only by boat). From some points of Madeira Island, we can see them.
The Island of Porto Santo was the first discovery by the Portuguese navigators, in 1418. It gained its name because it saved such a group from a strong storm on the high seas.
This is an island to enjoy nature and good food. There are 57km long and 22km wide, in a total of 741 km2. If we match the references we have in Brazil, it seems like a place to explore on a quick trip. But make no mistake. Madeira has many mountains and to cross from one side to another you will have to go up and down a lot.
In addition, we are in front of a very developed island in the tourist area, with many activities to be done. Over there, we walk a few miles and we have much more to explore.
