For a real adrenalin rush, there’s no better way to spend half a day than taking a buggy desert adventure from Santa Maria on the Island of Sal. Begin your four-hour trip by being picked up from your hotel, or meet your guide at Djadsal Moradias, depending on your preference.
Your adventure will begin by riding to Igrejinha Lagoon on an automatic off-road buggy. From there, you will head to Santa Maria’s famous salt flats and ride across the sand dunes which are close by. After that, you’ll return to the beautiful white sands of Kite Beach. Don’t think this is it, though; aside from these stops you’ll also be calling at the Calheta Funda volcanic beach, Palha Verde Oasis and many more. So, your experience won’t be limited to just one terrain.
A tip to bear in mind: You will need to bring your driver’s licence with you to prove you are eligible to drive a buggy.
