About the neighbourhood
Principally a beach resort with long stretches of white sand and an abundance of water sports, Sal is really an island for beach lovers as most of the island's sights and attractions can be seen in half a day. By night, Santa Maria, the main tourist area in Sal boasts a lively atmosphere with a good and varied choice of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets (from 10e for a good meal).

Getting around
Hire a car, beach buggy, fat bikes, scooters. Taxis are plentiful and cheap and always at reception and around town or parked outside the Morabeza Hotel.
