About the neighbourhood
Porto Antigo 1 is a small secure gated complex right by the sea, with its own pool and beach area where the original port was located many years ago. Santa Maria town has lots of interesting features, such as the pier, where the daily catch is landed each morning and sold to locals and tourists alike. There are several varied markets in the town plus lots of souvenir shops and mini marts. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Book a tour to see the sights such as the old salt pans, the blue eye and the lemon sharks. At certain times of year take a trip to see turtles nesting, then eggs hatching and the hatchlings rushing to the sea. Also whale watching when the humpback whales come around.
Getting around
Visit the Gest Plain office in front of PA2 to book a tour or hire either beach buggies, fat bikes, or cars. Alternatively, there are many other tour operators around. Apart from taking a tour, transport is not necessary. Taxis are very cheap and tours can be arranged with several good operators in the immediate vicinity.
