Holidays in Santa Maria

The area and getting around

I would love to know a little about Santa Maria

The island of Santa Maria is part of the Eastern Group of the Azores archipelago, 81 kilometres away from San Miguel. This island stands out for the beautiful green colour of its fields, its traditional European culture, the fireplaces in its houses, and the beauty of its beaches with turquoise water and golden sand. Being an island located in the south and east, it has a warmer and drier climate. Therefore, its vegetation is drier than the rest, with yellow tones, which is the reason why it is called the "La Isla del Sol". You can book a holiday letting in Santa Maria or surrounding towns to explore the Island.

But... I want to know more about this island

If we are specific, this island presents itself to you with two areas with reliefs and certain aspects that distinguish them. One of them is a flat and low area, where you will find the airport and the hamlet of Vila do Porto, the highest population concentration in the whole island territory and the parishes of San Pedro and Almagreira. The other side we will mention is a more rugged location with abundant vegetation, and one of the highlights of this part of the island is the Pico Alto massif. It is the highest point, with a height of 590 metres and one of the island's most beautiful views. In this location, you can also see interesting parishes such as Santa Barbara and Santo Espírito. Book a holiday letting in the Algarve and explore the beauty of Santa Maria.

Travellers and activities

Santa Maria for beach lovers

We are talking about an island that has beaches and stunning views. Its water is clear, and the turquoise colour matches the golden sand and lively plants that make their life around. One of the beaches that we recommend you visit is on the south coast, and it is called Praia Formosa. This beach is ideal if you are a fan of water sports, as here you can go surfing, windsurfing, water-skiing and sailing. Its sandy beach is one of the most valued characteristics, it is one of the main spots for surfers, and the beach has a white stone bottom, which has made it one of the clearest beaches of the Azores. If you have a holiday rental in Albufeira, the beaches in Santa Maria are a stone's throw.

Santa Maria for tourism lovers

Santa Maria Island is full of curiosities, mainly because of its historical and cultural value. Besides, there are incredible natural locations and religious monuments such as the Church of Nossa Senhora da Purificação. The temple is located in Santo Espirito, which gives you a panorama of typical frescoes of the tourist spot and has beautiful decorations and furniture in its facilities. Also, if you like to discover emblematic spots, then the protected area of Baía da Maia will be of interest. It is in the southwest of the island and has a landscape that is protected by the authorities. Plan a day trip from your holiday letting in Vilamoura to explore the landscape highlighted by vineyards and basaltic stone. Besides, it is on top of a cliff by the lighthouse of Gonçalo Velho, so you can't miss this visit.

Did you know that Santa Maria Island was the first to be populated when it was discovered?
