Climate, temperatures, rainfall
Porto Santo enjoys a fairly stable, dry climate and is generally warm enough for swimming most of the year (at least for sun-starved northern Europeans). Winter daytime temperatures rarely drop below 17ºC for any extended period, and reach the upper twenties in summer. That said, the island can be battered by Atlantic storms, and feels bleak in dull weather, so sun-seeking visitors may prefer to avoid mid-winter months.
