Praia de Santa Maria, Santa Maria

4.4
Enjoy a variety of relaxing beach activities at Praia de Santa Maria, where a stretch of golden sand reaches around a peninsula and far into the turquoise sea. If you snorkel, you're likely to spot puffer fish, moray eels, and turtles. Many nearby resorts, hotels, restaurants, and food huts provide amenities for tourists, while an improvised beach market serves up fresh seafood and souvenirs. Due to its length, the beach also makes for a nice jogging opportunity. Arrange to visit Praia de Santa Maria and other attractions in Ilha do Sal using our Ilha do Sal day trip website .

  • Quiet Bay of translucent waters, white sand and warm. Single location on this island almost desert. And yet, a taste of Africa ... what a delight!

  • Fantastic beach! Take a walk here and finish at kite beach Pontapreta with something cold to drink. Takes about 1 HR to go along with the water.
