Found this place on the TripAdvisor while driving around Porto Santo and without big expectations decided to give it a try. What a surprise it was to see that well-maintained oasis on the sun-burnt Porto Santo. It is hard to imagine how many years and especially efforts it took for the owners to create that beautiful garden. For the abstemious price of 3 €, you can see the parrots and the other birds, even an emu, feed the Koi Carps and the tortoises in the small pond. They also have a small coffee shop where you can relax and play a bit with Will, the white kakadu.
Recommended!

A pleasant surprise in an oasis filled with birds, rare peixers and plants. A great way to spend time on the Island of Porto Santo in the hours of very sunny or if the weather does not allow you to go to the beach

Visited as part of a private tour. Beautiful privately owned property and definitely worth a visit. Loved Will the White Parrot, he’s allowed to sit on your arm, but be careful he’s a bit partial to bracelets. Don’t forget to say Ola to to the friendly green parrot too, he likes a chatter. The Koi can be hand fed and there of loads of wonderful birds to see.

This tiny piece of Porto Santo is not supported by the major tour groups which is a real shame.
The garden is dotted with various ponds and bird enclosures and is a treat to the eye and soul.
A really relaxing walk round, a Treat to feed the Koi and a nice coffee at very reasonable prices to end.
Warning - only one toilet on site for male and females - Go when you can to avoid a long wait at busy times ( Maybe wy not supported by the tour companies)
