The resort of Santa Maria
Sal enjoys year round temperatures averaging between 24 & 30 degrees and averages 9 hours of sunshine per day and very little rain. Cape Verde is said to be the new Caribbean, but has a flight time of only 5 hours and only 1 hours time difference and cheap flights makes it affordable. Sal enjoys a fairly constant breeze which keeps the humidity down and provides for excellent water sports including kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing. Additionally scuba diving is particularly good, game fishing, Whale watching, Glass bottom boats, Jet Skis, Quad biking is also available very close to the apartment. For people who like sea food it is possible to purchase fish directly from the fishermen at the pier where they will be pleased to prepare the fish for you. Also Italians have been visiting Cape Verde for many years and some have stayed and opened restaurants, therefore you can expect to enjoy excellent good quality food. In addition to this there is Indian, Chinese, local Cape Verdian, German, Tapas, English and Continental Cuisine.
Bars range from Cape Verdian, to Internet cafes to Stylish music bars to Night Clubs, Beach BBQs/parties & entertainment evenings therefore there is something for everyone.
The beaches in Santa Maria are fabulous and vary greatly. All have fine white / golden sand and crystal clear warm water. But you can also find football, volley ball covered sunbathing areas or items for sales. There are areas where sunbathing is popular and sunbeds can be hired alternatively you can head away from the town and find yourself a completely secluded spot. As an example there is a beach to the East of Santa Maria where a small beach club as been setup with a lagoon which has an approximate 5 miles beach which is normally completely empty.

Will we be back
Everything was as Phil described it. Nice neat layout, ideal for one or two guests. Big bed and cosy little balcony, ideal for breakfast in the sun. Balcony in shade after midday. The kitchen area is along one wall and is compact but adequate, even for my long stay. When all is said and done, how much cooking are you likely to be doing in the apartment? The sofa converts to a bed, cannot comment on it as it wasnt used on this visit. The flat screen television is rather small but, again adequate with just CNN and a film channel to choose from in English. For football fans, a Portuguese channel is an option but do not expect much beyond Portuguese matches! The pool area is lovely, but get your loungers early during busy weeks or you may end up on the beach. Plenty of bars and eating places to choose from, whether your taste is upmarket or down. I recommend Tam Tam for lunch and a drink. The carrot cake is highly recommended!
When we arrived at Porto Antigo 2 we were greeted by a lovely pool surrounded by pretty gardens with a wonderful sea view straight in front of us. The studio had everything needed to make our stay comfortable, although as there are several good cafes/bars/restaurants within a short walking distance we did not make full use of the kitchen. We would reccommend this holiday studio for those wanting a completely relaxed holiday in a beautiful environment.
