About

Santa Maria is a part of the Azores archipelago. The island is renowned for its powdery beaches and warm weather, making it a hotspot for tourists and adventure hunters.

Whether you’re visiting Santa Maria for a family holiday or a thrill seeking long weekend, the island really does have something for everyone.

Mountain bikers can race down the hilly single tracks that cut through the beach and lakes.

Whether you’d like to explore the volcanic calderas, caves or lakes, canoeing or kayaking are the best way to do it. Visit areas that are normally inaccessible by any other means than these 1-2 seater pirogues and get an insight into the hidden marvels that most tourists rarely get to see.

In Santa Maria it is possible to paraglide all year round, however the summer period is the best. From a bird’s eye view you can see the spectacular craters and cliffs that are the heart of soul of this magnificent island.

Sunrise dives, sunset dives, wreck dives, cave dives, you name it, Santa Maria has it! The subaquatic world of this Portuguese island is a real treat for snorkelers and scuba divers alike! The island boasts a large variety of marine life and has an abundance of underwater vegetation.

The Azores are currently one of the world’s largest whale sanctuaries and house over 20 different species.

After all that we’re sure you’ll find something (or several things) that take your fancy!
