It is called the ‘sunshine island’ for the yellowish hue that touches its vegetation and possibly because it has the warmest and driest climate of all the islands in the archipelago. Towns and villages are blessed with pretty white-painted houses and elegant churches to see by day. By night stylish wine bars and dance clubs make for a fun evening out.
Cantinho do Paraiso’s private and protected forest is available for you to wander around and soak up its special atmosphere – adding to what we hope will be a truly unique and special trip. You will simply love the peace and isolation that the forest gives you. It’s easy to wander around, with well marked out pathways and offers special spots to spend a while in, when all you want to do is stop and relax. A forest walk before breakfast makes a great way to build up an appetite or you could take a snooze there after lunch with the whisper of a soft wind blowing through the trees. Here you can do whatever the mood takes you, all the while breathing in the pure fresh air.
A Santa Maria sunset is a stunning display that offers a splendour of beautiful and rich colours. Enjoy a sky filled with deep oranges, vivid yellows or sublime purples and marvel at nature’s wonder. With the island’s mid-Atlantic position and the great views you get from our Villa or Casita, you can enjoy this spellbinding light show all year round – it will really take your breath away!

This immersive experience delights all that take part and you can take home your own Cantinho do Paraiso label honey. Protective clothing is supplied for all participants.

Lie back and relax as you enjoy this special massage so you can feel renewed and ready to get back out and discover more of the island. A marvellous way to start a lazy day or end an active one.
