TripAdvisor Reviews Torre Praia Hotel Porto Santo
Travel Blogs from Porto Santo
We're on Day 57 already and still more than a month to go. I booked the return ferry a couple of weeks ago, so I shall dose myself with Stugeron since it is the 24-hour crossing from Santander in northern Spain into Portsmouth and I don't sail well.
