    What to Expect
    Start the tour at 9:30am with a pickup from your Santa Maria hotel. The first stop will be on the beautiful beach of Ponta Preta. There, your guide will brief you about the rest of your day. Next, drive to Murdeira and Palmeira, a small local fishing village. While you're on the way, see Lion Mountain before stopping at Burraconna, a natural pool where you may swim and see the blue eye. Once you have finished your visit at the natural pool, drive off-road to see the Fata Morgana on Mirage.

    After this it's time to stop for lunch at a local bar in the capital city, Espargos. There, you can eat the local food or just have some drinks. Next, head to the top of the mountain where you have a nice view all over the island. Finally, head to the water to see Lemon Sharks up close and personal. Then, float in the Salinas, also known as Salt Lake, rumored to make one appear 10 years younger. From here, drive back to your accommodations and conclude the tour.
