Photographer's Note

Mexilhoeira Beach, in Santa Cruz, owes its singular beauty to the pretty in the steep rocky cliffs that surround all the sandy area.
With the high tide, the sandy area gets quite reduced, however the beach is still very pleasant and beautiful, with quite an amazing surrounding vegetation.
The access to the beach is made through a wooden walk or through a lovely white stairway
Atlantic Beaches of Rare Natural Beauty
Perhaps because of the rare natural beauty of its beaches, Santa Cruz is one of the most sought after seaside resorts of the western region.
Santa Cruz and its outskirts are favoured with a group of beaches with extensive miles of golden sands, surrounded by majestic cliffs.These slopes formed by clay rocks in red and grey tones, either covered by the green vegetation or discovered, that involves the swimmers in a natural frame of beauty. Attracted by these charms are the millions of tourists spread throughout enjoying the moments of rest and relaxation.
The wind and sea can sometimes aggressively whip away the sands, but they are so extensive and many of them protected by the cliffs. Paradise for surfers with all the natural conditions to practice this sport.
During the summer season, especially the month of August, Santa Cruz reaches a resident population of 40.000. On quiet weekends, be it summer or winter, mainly on Sunday afternoons, hundreds of people that live on the outskirts do not dispense their Sunday stroll in Santa Cruz
