Santa Monica Beach in Boa Vista is one of the most stunning beaches I've ever been on. There is nothing for miles so don't expect bars or anything like that. It's just pure white sand and turquoise sea. You can't go far in the water...More

Far from everything and with difficult access(local taxi drivers o the circuit often), there is one of the best beaches I have ever seen, white sands kissed by a light blue sea, and almost no one around, it deserves the visit for sure.

This is an empty beach for you alone. Its 15 km long and you can drive with you car direct along the waterfront. The beach is 200 meters wide and there is no trace of human living anywhere

Extremely nice beach on the southern tip of the island. Best way to get there is by quad or 4x4. Beautiful sandy beach with great breakers and crystal clear water.

We went there in a quad bike tour and it's an ideal way to see the place. We did some paddling, but no swimming as the waves were huge. Basically, it's just white/gold sandunes in a beautiful bay. There are no trees, buildings, or many...More

This beach is breathtaking and almost deserted. Voted in the top 10 beaches in the world and I can see why. Worth visiting just to have your breath taken away. Take lots of water and very high factor as there is no shade, swimming is...More

Beautiful beach, but no facilities at all. Strong undertow which means there is no swimming at all. Tiny crabs running around in the small amount of shallows where the waves break. Very cute! Worth a visit, just for the view.

Santa Monica beach is a Beautiful, long, sandy beach at South Boavista. You can only reach it by walking for a few hours or by a jeep, there is no road. Only a few people and some goats when we visited.
