The Bay of Santa Maria is one of the most memorable beaches you will ever encounter. It is 3kms of white sandy beach and a warm crystal clear swimmable ocean.  Surf Zone Beach Side Suites / Apartments are a stone’s throw from the beach and its ocean. Located in the village of Santa Maria you can walk out of these brand new apartments/suites and everything is available to you.

You can hop to the beach, walk to the pier where fresh fish is sold, experience diverse restaurants & cafes, saunter to our kite school and yoga studio all before you can say

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Brand New, the Surf Zone House is fitted with 10 apartment-suites ranging from studios, 1 bedroom suites with ocean views and 2 bedroom apartments.


Each suite/apartment is fully furnished, with private bathrooms and a fully functioning kitchen with comforts that you seek when on holiday. In addition to all this Surf Zone houses a super helpful in-house manager, who will ensure you have all the right information to have a fabulous holiday.

 Great location in Santa Maria (right next to the pier) with lots of great restaurants nearby. Apartment was really clean and cleaned twice whilst we were there. Lots of great local tips from their Airbnb guestbook and from Jane (who checked us in and out)Air con and fans helped keep us cool and really clean simple cooking facilities

In the (Surf)zone: An authentic Cape Verde experience - all good, no stress!

You can't go wrong with Surfzone Apts: bang in the middle of town, perfect for beach, kite, socializing or partying until the next morning. Stumble out the front door for your morning swim: the beach is across the street & around the corner. Gotta go kite? The school is a 5 min stroll away (2 min if you're late). Hungry in the evening? Everything from sushi to burgers to kachupa in the immediate neighborhood. Brand new building, with apartments outfitted to EU/US comfort standards, it's all good! Even better: Captain Jane is there to make sure you're happy, and to share the inside scoop on where to go and what to do. Sal Island has more to offer than just kiting, and Jane makes a personal mission of ensuring you won't get close to bored. Sheena & Rod and their team at the Surfzone school will get you up and riding in no time; Sheena & Jane will yoga your sore bones into shape for the next day... All good! In the best Cape Verde tradition: No stress!

We had a warm welcome by Jane, who showed us the best spots in the city and gave us a lot of tipps. We booked the studio but Jane surprised with an upgrade to a bigger apartment. The appartment was clean and they also cleaned it 2 times a week. The location is great, you just have to walk a few steps and you're already in the city centre or at the beach. Thank you for everything, we had a really great stay!
