    Porto Santo is tiny...one doesn't need great resources to get around it and experience her fully. Taxi service and car hire is there but bus transport would probably be limited - all clearly intended to limit traffic and pollution impact on this special little island. Tho it's been a few years since I was there last, I can't imagine things have greatly changed to accommodate too much modern encroachability. The sea is never far from anywhere including your hotel pretty sure.

    You are 5,9km away from the beach and 7,9 Km from the night clubs at the docks...It's not far, but is not close too... it's a tricky distance.
    I think you should call to the hotel. I doubt that they don't have a solution for that. When I went to Porto Santo and I wanted to travel arround the island I rented a small car.
