Santa Cruz

A small seaside resort right next to the airport and only 25 minutes away from the capital Funchal, this resort has a beautiful promenade, a modest selection of restaurants and bars, a supermarket and a charming church square.

Santa Cruz is home to the island’s only water park with four toboggan rides, four other slides, two swimming pools and a capacity for 1000 visitors.
