The climate of Santa Maria (Cape Verde)
Santa Maria is a small town located in the southern part of the island of Sal which is part of the Barlavento Islands, Cape Verde. It is the most important tourist destination of the island and all large hotels chains have opened branches here. Santa Maria is such a popular destination because of its 8 kilometer long sandy beach. The village is very popular among divers and snorkelers, mainly because of the several coral reefs that can be found off the coast. The beaches are very important breeding grounds for sea turtles as well. Santa Maria can be reached by Amilcar Cabral international airport.
Santa Maria has a tropical savannah climate. Temperatures are slightly higher here than in other places in Cape Verde. Precipitation figures are low all year round causing the surrounding areas to be arid. There is such a shortage of fresh water that the hotel pools are filled with sea water. The Harmattan wind may cause a dry and dusty air.
