Santa Maria

Covered in grapevines, Santa Maria Island is like painting of color palettes of divine inspiration.

Elegant white chimneys brought over by the first settlers coming from the south of the Continent, pages in the history of Vila do Porto e dos Anjos, where Columbus arrived in his first voyage to the New World, are some of the charming trivia of beautiful Santa Maria Island, known as the Sun Island.

Cut out with ocean bays, Santa Maria Island offers the most beautiful beaches of the Azores, with white sand and crystalline waters, who present challenges to surfers, windsurfers, sailors, divers and deep sea aficionados… in sum, countless activities for your active vacation.
