Don't spend too much time there
The beaches are really nice: white sand, clean water. But the big problem is the wind! It's impossible to lie on the beach if you don't have some wind barriers around and also the sea is full of waves and you can not really swim... A part from this there is nothing to do on the island (maybe a visit to Espargos and the salines: expensive, you can move only by taxi)! The village is full of people from the west coast of africa selling all the same things and annoying people who just want to have a walk... very artificial and completely different from the other islands of Cape Verde, which are very different one from the other but all extremely nice!

Santa Maria was still a pleasant town. It's really developing at the moment and within a couple of years it will lose its authenticity. The prices of the apartments were like those in Europe, 380.000 euros, while the average wages of a working person was

Quite quiet, but worth visiting though. Some pushy salesmen, but we didn't mind that much! The churches were very nice to see, especially the Protestase church!!

The town Santa Maria was very poor. They are building a lot of hotels there now.
