Cape Verde Islands Holidays

Cape Verde Holidays

Atmospheric island destinations

The Cape Verde Islands are increasingly popular thanks to the superb climate, excellent beaches and a beguiling, tropical atmosphere. These charmingly idiosyncratic islands to the west of Senegal offer a tremendous variety of landscapes and a host of outdoor activities. With the islands being so different it is important to know what kind of holiday you are looking for. For beach holidays most choose one of the more barren islands like Boa Vista and Sal, while walking holidays are best spent on lush mountainous islands like Santo Antao. Longer stay holidays offer the opportunity to combine several contrasting islands in one trip.

Active holidays

Perfect wind conditions and exceptional beaches attract keen windsurfers and kite surfers. The Cape Verde Islands also have a worldwide reputation for big game fishing. Well-reputed diving holidays can be taken in Sal, Boa Vista and Sao Vicente. Walking holidays offer fascinating trails through stunning scenery, particularly on Santo Antao and Fogo. Your trip to these islands could also include horse riding, snorkelling, golf, tennis, birdwatching and sailing. Nightlife is also largely dependent on your choice of island. For the present, Sal and Sao Vicente are the liveliest islands, but the increasing popularity of Cape Verde means that new hotels and resorts are popping up all the time. All islands offer tasty, economical local cuisine, a rich musical heritage and unforgettable atmosphere.

Beaches and volcanoes

For many visitors, a holiday in Cape Verde is all about the white sandy beaches and sublime turquoise water. For others however, Cape Verde means tropical mountains and wild volcanoes. Even if your holiday is beach based, it is well worth touring the interior of the islands. All holidays here offer exciting tours and jeep safaris. Despite growing tourism, islands like Santiago still offer plenty of scope for adventure. For many visitors here the ultimate holiday experience is seeing the incredible live volcano on Fogo.
