help please


Can anyone help - me and my boyfriend are really keen on booking our summer holiday to Porto Santo - however we are worried that when we get there, their won't be an awful lot to do, we don't obviously want clubs or anything hectic.. relaxation is key. However it's always nice to have a walk outside the hotel and go to a few bars or small places to maybe have a drink, or something different to eat (rather than the hotel food all the time - just to break it up, as we are looking at going at the end of June for 2 weeks), and have a wonder? Does Porto Santo offer this? Also is the end of June also a recommended time to go, for lots of guaranteed sun :-)

Any help/guidance/advice, would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you!!!

"a walk outside the hotel and go to a few bars or small places to maybe have a drink, or something different to eat" - Yes, you have that option, some restaurants, a little bit far from the hotels, even offer transfer.

"lots of guaranteed sun"- there's never this guarantee (not even in august), but the probability it's high.

the walk along the most stunning beach will lead you to a small selection of bars and restaurants in either direction.

we were there for 2 weeks last july - and were very unlucky with the weather - the only reason we wont be returning to this fantastic hotel / island.
