How to move around
If you want to travel between the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo, you may choose doing it by air or sea transport. Sea transport is provided by a boat with regular connections between Madeira and Porto Santo. There are several tour-ist entertainment companies that make boat trips along the Madeira Island coast, and some of them offer occasional trips to the Desertas Islands.
Ground transportation is diverse, including buses, taxis and Uber, rental cars, cable cars, tuk-tuks, segways, bikes and sidecars; it also allows easy access to the main points of attraction.
