The desert like landscape of Sal Island does not always create a ‘love at first sight’ situation. But after just a few hours a kind of “seduction game” will begin which is hard to explain.

The city of Santa Maria has a wide range of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops, especially on the newly created pedestrian street in the the city centre .
