The Azores region
Santa Maria is the most southeastern island of the 9 islands, due to its climate, it is now as the Algarve of the Azores.
The Azores have been considered one of the best world's sustainable tourism destination.
In recent years, Santa Maria has been ranked for its underwater dives with manta ray's and whale sharks (usually during September and October).
The island has the best beach in all of the Azores, on a south facing bay (Praia Formosa) - on occasion and due to currents, the beach gets stripped of its sand.
Azores knows best for its green pristine landscapes, the hospitality of its people and the merging scenery of blue ocean and green pastures.
In weather terms, the best time to visit the island is from May to September. Most of the religious festivities occur from June to September.
