No matter if you’re searching for a relaxed beach holiday, romantic retreat or active family adventure, Cape Verde has something to suit everyone. It boasts year-round sun and stunning beaches, an array of activities and plenty of accommodation options to suit any taste or budget.
Where to Stay
Cape Verde’s ten islands offer a diverse selection of hotel choices, from large international chains to budget-conscious B&Bs and guesthouses. Many are situated on stunning beaches so you can enjoy some sun followed by an evening filled with fun at one of the island’s many beach bars.
Boa Vista and Sal are two of the most sought-after Cape Verde islands, offering beautiful beaches for sunbathers to unwind on. There are also several charming villages to discover as well as plenty of opportunities for kite surfing or windsurfing in calm waters.
Santiago, Maio and Sao Vicente are less developed but more authentic. These islands all lie within the Sotavento (windward) group of islands and offer visitors a chance to experience authentic Cape Verdean culture firsthand.
Fogo, the highest peak in the archipelago, is ideal for those seeking solitude. It boasts a volcanic crater and the stunning village of Cha das Caldeiras.
Brava, the greenest island of the Sotavento islands, is an ideal destination for nature enthusiasts and those wanting to experience local culture. There are some stunning beaches to enjoy as well as numerous interesting attractions like Vila Nova Sintra – an historic port town that dates back centuries.
