Santa Maria, Cape Verde

In Cape Verde we stayed by the beach in the charming and colorful city Santa Maria. On the Island Sal of Cape Verde most of the hotels are close to the city Santa Maria which is the third largest city in Cape Verde. Even though the city is the third largest city in Cape Verde you don't need more than an hour to see the whole city.

The city has a lot of bars, restaurants, and a few stores where you can buy souvenirs and wines from the neighboring islands. In the harbor you can watch local fishermen bring in their daily catch but most of the fish and all of the lobster is reserved for hotels and restaurants. At the beach there are many shops where you can rent surf, kite surf and wind surf equipment, and there is a lot of surf schools if you want to take lessons. It is very windy on the Cape Verde islands which make the conditions perfect for surfers.

Here are some pictures from Santa Maria.
