The star of the show is the beach: a sublime strip of gentle sand and ever-so-blue waters with world-class windsurfing and lots of fun-in-the-sun activities. Beyond the shoreline, there aren't many attractions, though Santa Maria is the best place to arrange excursions to other parts of the island. While sleepy during the day, the town comes to life at night, with buzzing open-air eateries and bars lining the inland streets parallel to the beach.
