RACE INFORMATION

The smallest inhabited island of the Madeira Archipelago is commonly called as golden island by Madeirans: a nine kilometers long beach of extensive and continuous golden sands grants this nickname to Porto Santo. This golden sand is composed by microfossils and small fragments of limestone algae, mollusc shells and other fossilized remains of marine organisms. These are records of a past with about 30 thousand years of history, of immense biological productivity and that has reached the present day, showing therapeutic and medicinal attributes.

Located very closely to Madeira, Porto Santo Island is completely different – is an extremely flat island with little rain and with completely sandy soil.

But Porto Santo isn’t only beach, it’s also filled with beautiful trails with constant views over the blue sea. Between the sea and the mountains, Porto Santo is a must visit island!
