About the tour

Welcome to my favorite beach village around Lisbon, I consider this place my second home, since a kid that i spend part of my summer days here. This is the perfect virtual trip for everyone that misses the ocean, the smell of salty water, the noise of waves breaking in the sand, and that connection with nature. My goal is to make you feel that you are with me physically in this location seeing our breathtaking views of the ocean cliffs and beach, feeling the water of the Atlantic ocean, and smelling the pure air that this paradise has to offer. Santa Cruz has many surprises to reveal, it was always a place that inspired people like the famous poet Antero de Quental and the Japanese Kazou Dan. We will pass by our water mill completely restore original from the XVI, and visit some of our monuments related to our patroness Saint Helen and learning about some of her myths, with special attention to our chapel place at Saint Helen viewpoint, that will be where we will finalize our virtual trip with a breathtaking view over the Atlantic ocean and to our famous rock named Penedo do Guincho that is the symbol of Santa Cruz.

Enjoyable tour of a lovely place that I would love to visit one day soon. The sea looked lovely and I was very envious of your toes getting wet - hope you had a towel with you! Thank you.

This was a beautiful tour of a place that I would love to visit one day. Igorโ€™s a fabulous tour guide wherever he takes us and today I felt as if I was actually there by the sea. Igor takes us to the most lovely locations in his home country and is such a knowledgeable and happy person.

A fantastic day at a seaside village with a relaxing walk along the beach. We even got to dip our toes into the ocean. This tour was exactly as advertised. Thank you Igor for taking us away from the busyness of travel and to enjoy a bit of calmness.
