This morning on two wheels and two feet is a great way to explore southern Sal. Your adventure takes a scenic route from the salt flats of Santa Maria to Kite Beach and on to Serra Negra. Not only will you get to see some of the island's best bits but you'll also get to stretch those legs.
The fun kicks off at Santa Maria salt flats after you've received your bike and helmet. You'll pedal your way to the famous Mitu & Djo beach club at Kite Beach. Run by champion kitesurfers, this sweep of sand gets its name from the crowds of kitesurfers who flock here. You won't be catching any air yourself but you'll have a few minutes to catch your breath and watch the pros riding the waves before continuing on to Serra Negra.
It should take about an hour on two wheels before you read Sal's highest point – at just over 100 metres. From here on in, two feet are better than two wheels, and the final leg to the summit is by foot. The views from the top will have been worth the effort.
