    Local crafts: Not much to buy

    by tere1 Written Jul 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Santa Maria do Sal is a very small and modest village. There are no good shops, so if you are after shopping, forget it! You can though buy some local crafts, necklaces, bracelets there. Many people from senegal also go to the beach and try to sell them.

    Account managers on the beach :-)

    by mauro_pd Written Sep 29, 2002

    These are not shops, these are expert Account Managers running the beach up & doen the whole day trying to sell you some local handcrafts :-)
    Actually sometimes u think u prefer not to have these guys but if u realize the condition they live u can easily understand why they "disturb" you.

    What to buy: Local handcrafts made of wood, turtles, hyppos, neck chain ...

    What to pay: Always bargain

    The market of Santa Maria: Many things to buy

    by Joan58 Written Apr 5, 2003

    The best place where you can go shopping is in Santa Maria, on the Ilha do Sal. Santa Maria is the most tourist place, so you'll find many things to buy. Here there are many shops and a little open market.

    What to buy: The open market is full of wood carvings, paintings, African masks, batiks, bongos and necklaces, bracelets...and it is also full of people...as you can see in the picture.

    What to pay: Bargain over the price. Santa Maria is the most expensive place of Cape Verde, but here you can find a fine range of goods.
