Rocky plains and white sand deserts are part of the scenery in this island of volcanic origin. Beyond the beach of the Santa Maria village, you need to see the Algodoeiro, the Murdeira bay or Calheta Funda. And the island is tiny: there’s always time for a natural spa in the Pedra de Lume Salt Mines!
