About the neighbourhood
Principally a beach resort with long stretches of white sand and an abundance of water sports, Sal is really an island for beach lovers as most of the island's sights and attractions can be seen in half a day. By night, Santa Maria, the main tourist area in Sal, boasts a lively atmosphere with a good choice of bars and restaurants.

Sal is the most developed of all the Cape Verde Islands in terms of tourism yet still has a very barren landscape. In the north of the island you will find a salt lake in an extinct volcano crater, an impressive sight. Marine life around the coast of Sal and the rest of the archipelago is high with countless species including flamboyant tropical fish, dolphins and turtles (season dependant). Live music plays a huge part in Cape Verdean cu...
Getting around
Hire a car, dune buggy or fat bike for a day or two, or take a half day island tour - lots of happy licensed drivers in Santa Maria, or Lizy can arrange one for you on arrival.
Use the free shuttle bus passes to go to Santa Maria, the beach or Espargos (the capital).
