Traveling back in time when the great explorer Christopher Columbus set foot on the island in 1498 it didn’t seem like a great place to him, but maybe he had seen too many mesmerizing things on his journeys to really be captivated by most places we ordinary mortals would consider paradise. But today the island is fast growing in popularity. Its tropical temperatures and beautiful beaches are the stuff of unbridled beauty, spanning a whopping 55 km. They feature crystal clear blue tides and a low number of tourists at the beach, making this one of the best places to relax away from the bustles of civilization.
The beach at Curralinho is said to be one of the best and is popularly known as Santa Monica due to its likeness to the California beach. It features around 20 miles of pure Australian grandeur and neighbor’s Praia da Varandinha beach. Curralinho beach has calm, warm waters, making it the ideal beach to spend the day swimming, especially with family. It is also a great place if you are into diving, not to mention that there are numerous restaurants and beach bars nearby where you can enjoy delicious delicacies and relax with a drink afterwards.
