Next, head towards Povoação Velha and get to know the atmosphere of the oldest settlement on the island. Continue to Santa Monica beach, considered the most beautiful beach of the archipelago and one of the most stunning beaches in the world. Swim in the turquoise waters and relax on the white sand. Take in the ride to Varandinha and discover the wonders and secrets carved behind these limestone caves. Learn how these natural wonders were formed by sea erosion and explore the area. Take a break for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant in Sal Rei, and enjoy the local cuisine before a drive to the Cabo Santa Maria Shipwreck. Hear of how this old boat has been stranded for 50 years and became a symbol of inspiration for local painters and photographers. The tour ends with a drop off at your accommodation.
