On the approach, the island appears below you like a long-forgotten desert island. You can easily spot the Pedra de Lume salt pans on to the west and the half moon bay of Santa Maria to the south.
It is the most barren of the inhabited islands on the archipelago, but don’t let that put you off; there are some lovely sandy beaches and the water sports activities in Santa Maria are excellent with good diving, wind and kite surfing.
Surrounded by black lava rock Buracona looks like an inviting natural swimming pool, but don’t let this fool you, as often waves crash over the rock and care should be taken when you walk on the rocks. The nearby Blue Eye is an underground pool where only experienced divers dare to dive through the underground tunnel that eventually comes out into the sea.
Recommended small travel company!
Great little company with friendly staff. Organisation of flights & accommodation very efficient. When problems arise they are helpful and very reasonable in their efforts to resolve them. We would definitely use them again for a return trip
A wonderful break in a beautiful environment
