    The stone beach of Santa Cruz is not so amazing, but the new bars and gradens around the coast makes this beach really special. Enjoy!

    Santa Cruz - Garajau

    by salinhopt Written Oct 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If we compare Santa Cruz with other regions of the Madeira, we notice that much vegetation does not exist. It is one of the regions most barren of the island. It was here that the first sea reserve of the island was born, Garajau.
