Pick up a souvenir or two in Santa Cruz. This charming town is home to age-old buildings and lots of shops. There’s a lovely collection of restaurants too, so stay for dinner one evening.
If you’re craving peace and seclusion, spend a day in Guia de Isora. Calm and clear waters lend themselves perfectly for a spot of snorkelling or diving and the quieter sands were made for summer afternoons. Or golfers might want to play nine holes at the golf course located a short distance away.
