Welcome to our home from home. Vila Vrede, on the island of Sal, is a peaceful resort, with all that you need to relax and unwind. The apartment has a balcony overlooking the Cactus pool and bar and distant views of Kite Beach. The Resort town of Santa Maria is a twenty minute walk away south, as is Kite Beach to the east with Ponta Preta Beach fifteen minutes to the west.

Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde

The resort itself is very peaceful and quiet, as is the island in general. As mentioned before, the beaches are 15-20 minutes away on foot. Kite beach is not a swimming beach, as this is a Mecca for Kite Surfers, with the constant breeze on the island, which are great to watch and you can book lessons if you want. Ponta Preta Beach has two bars and is nice to watch the sunset with a beer or three. Santa Maria Beach in the town is the best for swimming in, as the wind is light and doesn't create the swell of the other two. There is a very popular pier in the town, where the fishermen bring home their catch, around 11am onwards, then sell the fish to restaurants and the public.
There are quite a few tours to take on the island, taking in the Burracona (Blue Eye), the salt mine (take your swimming costume) and Shark Beach, where you can walk within a few metres of them. It's safe, as they're vegetarian Lemon sharks. Take a couple of Euros for footwear hire, or take some crocs or old trainers to wade in the sea.
