Self-catering holiday rentals in Santa Maria for your home stay

Santa Maria, on the island of Sal in Cape Verde, is the perfect destination for a holiday in the sun. It has an idyllic 8km white sand beach lapped by clear turquoise waters and year-round sunshine in which to enjoy it. The beach is 200m wide in places, so you will have no trouble finding a quiet spot to relax and work on your suntan, but there are other ways to enjoy the sea and sand. There are facilities for jet skiing, windsurfing, water skiing and kite surfing, as well as a selection of centres where you can learn the basics of scuba diving. If that all sounds like too much effort, you could take to the sea on board a yacht for a tour of the island's coastline, big game fishing trip or a dolphin and shark spotting expedition. Sal's inland areas are largely flat and rugged, but there are some highlights that make a 4x4 or quad bike tour worthwhile. The salt lakes are particularly spectacular, while the Buracona lagoon and cave is a genuine beauty spot. Santa Maria itself is quiet, but there are some fantastic seafood restaurants on the main street and, after dining on lobster, gooseneck barnacles and cuttlefish, you can try the bars and live music venues.

Holiday letting in Santa Maria for your short break

You can choose from a wide range of holiday apartments in Santa Maria, with properties available that sleep anywhere from two to ten people. Many of the best apartment complexes are located on the beachfront, so you can enjoy wonderful views from the balcony as the sun goes down, and benefit from a communal swimming pool and air conditioning. For a genuine luxury getaway, you could book a holiday flat in one of Santa Maria's five-star resorts, which will give you access to spa, gym and sports facilities throughout your stay. If you would prefer somewhere a little more private for your family, there is also a selection of holiday villas in Santa Maria. The stylish homes mostly come with private pools, air conditioning and either an outdoor decked area or garden, where you can enjoy al fresco meals in the evenings.

Best time to enjoy Santa Maria

One of the best things about Sal is that it has warm weather throughout the year, with an average temperature above 25°C, so you can enjoy a beach holiday in Santa Maria at any time. It is a particularly good destination for a winter sun break, as you will be guaranteed sun and temperatures above 22°C between November and February; conditions that could hardly be more different from those you would encounter in Europe during the season. Spring is another great choice for a family holiday in Santa Maria, as it is warm and rain is almost unheard of from March to June, meaning you can look forward to lazy days on the beach and by the pool. The hottest period of the year in Sal is from August to October, and although this is known as the rainy season, downpours are relatively rare an
