About the neighbourhood
The pristine dune forest of the Machangulo Private Nature Reserve runs for over 20km along the ocean coast and only 15 private villas have been built so you can be assured of a very private and secluded holiday with only the occasional soul to be spotted on the beach.
There are a few basic shops and a food market in the main local village of Santa Maria which is about 7km away on the bay side of the peninsular. There is also a popular bar and restaurant which serves hearty chicken and fish dishes.
Car not needed
