Cape Verde

Cape Verde is an archipelago in front of the coast of Senegal. The island group combines an exotic African culture with a dash of Portugal, as the island group is a former Portuguese colony.

With long sandy beaches, great hotels and resorts as well as temperatures well over 25 degrees Celsius, Cape Verde is an excellent winter and spring destination for those in dire need of some sun and sea.

The island of Sal

As the name already gives away, the island of Sal (Portuguese for ‘salt’) was used for salt mining by the old Portuguese colonial overlords. The sparsely populated island nowadays is mostly focused on tourism as it receives countless of daily flights full of sunbirds from all over Europe.

It is an excellent destination if you want to laze away the day at the beach or drink a caipirinha or rum or two. You can still visit the old salt mines as well if you want to make a cultural day trip.

During your booking, you can add a room in one of the island’s tourist resorts. It is however also possible to book accommodation yourself, either in one of the mega-resorts, or in one of the main towns such as Santa Maria.

Explore the rest of the archipelago

Even though Sal is the main tourist hub of Cape Verde, it is not the most important island. Praia, the capital of Cape Verde, is located further south on Santiago island.

Praia is however not the most interesting destination for tourists to explore. If you want to do some island hopping and see more of the country besides Sal, we would recommend to hop on an inter-island flight to the island of São Vicente to visit the city of Mindelo, which is by far the most vibrant and culturally interesting destination of the island group. From Mindelo, you can then hop on a ferry to nearby Santo Antão island.

Santo Antão is by far the most unique of all of Cape Verde’s islands. The wild northern coast of the island has steep cliffs and lush tropical forests thanks to its volcanic origins. It basically feels like the African version of Hawaii!
