Come Visit Cape Verde

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Cape Verde islands?

Is it the miles upon miles of unspoilt, unpolluted, undiscovered beaches? Is it the eye pleasing emerald blue waters, replete with coral reef, colorful sea creatures and coastal birds? Is it the the isolated island setting, perfect for indulging in the heat and getting away from the hustle and bustle of urban life?

Yes, when you visit the Cape Verde Islands, you’ll experience all these things and more.

However, the real highlight of a Cape Verdean vacation isn’t the climate, the setting or the abundance of activities. The real pleasure is in the total experience, seeing the sun set as you surf into shore on a warm summer evening, basking in the glory of Boa Vista’s beaches with sunrise, gasping in awe at the dolphins, whales , turtles and sea fish of the Sal archipelago.

The Cape Verdean experience is unlike any other. It is the trip of a lifetime, a total immersion in another world, a world filled with sights, sounds and scenery straight out of a sunny southern hot spot.
