Santa Maria is the main resort on the Cape Verde archipelago with just the right amount of hotels, restaurants, bars and activities to keep you entertained. During the day, whilst everyone is on the beach or off windsurfing, fishing or exploring the salt flats, it may seem pretty quiet but when the sun goes down and the caiprinias are poured Santa Maria comes to life.

With the constant climate being one of Sal's selling points, any time is a good time to visit. As with all the islands, the summer months from June to September are busy with activities such as September's Santa Maria Music Festival, a large-scale festival that attracts people from all over Cape Verde as well as abroad.
Sal hosts the main international airport on Cape Verde and is easy to get to. Thomson fly direct from the UK (from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham) and TAP and TACV fly into Sal from various other locations around Europe and the rest of the world.
Temperatures average at a very comfortable 26C throughout the year but summer is hot and can even bring a little rain, whilst the evenings can be a bit chilly between December and February.
Don't forget to visit Noscasa's head office opposite the entrance to the Morabeza Hotel and see the wonderful display of local contemporary art on display.
