I stayed here about 20 years ago for a 4-day weekend in the spring. There were only two resorts on the island - the Cape Santa Maria and the Stella Maris at the opposite end. On the days that the Stella Maris people did not visit (what a commotion they made sheeesh...) it felt like we were the last two people on earth. The beach is one of the most stunning I've ever seen, a long white endless crescent, strips of every shade of neon blue stretching to the horizon. The kind of place where you can actually see the green flash at sunset. Rustic caribbean individual bungalow-style rooms, TVs, no phone, wifi didn't exist.... just fresh seafood at mealtime served with a down-home vibe. No airs put on at all. Soooo relaxing. I would love to come back some day but I see the rates have jumped drastically. Oh well, I guess I can say "I was there way back when....."
