Santa CruzSanta Cruz located in the eastern part of the island near the International Airport and by the sea. It’s a wonderful town with many attractions. In the centre of Santa Cruz is a beautiful historical Church; the Igreja Matriz built in the 16th Century.
Down the street is Palmeiras Beach, a pebble beach very popular with locals and tourists in the summer and equipped with kids swimming pool, beach toys, trained lifeguards and first aid centre. Enjoy a wonderful walk along the promenade, bounded by palm trees and the sea.
Don’t miss the nearby Santa Cruz Aqua Park built in 2004, with fantastic water slides swimming pools and lazy river; a wonderful place for a family to spend an entire day of fun.
