Praias do Porto Santo, this in first place, and Seixal, occupying the third position, among the best in Europe, according to the website “European Best Destinations”.

As it does every year, the website “European Best Destinations” chose the 22 best beaches on the European continent, based on the votes of travelers. It is they, themselves, who speak of their justice and the choice of the golden sand of Porto Santo was unanimous, being the most voted.

An election that, as the website indicates, is highlighted not only by the serenity and simplicity of Ilha Dourada, but also because of the “therapeutic virtues” of the sand on this beach.

Also in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, but on the north coast of the island of Madeira, Praia do Seixal, which occupies the third place on the list, was popular with voters.

It is recalled that Madeira was elected as the safest destination during the pandemic, despite having been elected the best destination in the world seven times.
