Beach resorts Santa Cruz and Calheta
Santa Cruz pairs fishing village charm with great beach resort credentials. Brightly painted boats bookend a beach stocked with sunloungers, parasols and family-run restaurants. Plus, a ten-minute mooch along the prom takes you to a petite waterpark. Calheta, meanwhile, is a bit of a beach resort in the making. It’s got all the essentials, though — including a rare sandy beach.
