Cape Verde – The African Caribbean

Cape Verde, sometimes known as the African Caribbean, has so much to offer the visitor. It has: fabulous beaches, lush forests, dramatic mountains, sand dunes, deserts and a tropical climate. There is lots to do and see such as: turtles spotting, whale watching, diving, sailing, surfing, kitesurfing, quad biking, swimming, snorkelling, dancing the funana, watching sunsets and mixing with the friendly locals…

These lovely islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 600km west of the coast of West Africa just a little lower than the Canaries. Each island has its own character and a variety of terrain. From expanses of desert to tall mountains, these nine inhabited volcanic islands are fascinating. Having been relatively unknown for many years, this country is now becoming a popular tourist destination. However, it is still possible to find large expanses of deserted beaches or mountain walks with no one in sight. The international airports are being enlarged and modernised and travel between the islands is becoming much more reliable.

The people are friendly and although the official language is Portuguese, many speak Cape Verdean creole. They love music and dancing and know how to enjoy life. There is also a large range of holiday accommodation from self-catering apartments to large all-inclusive resort hotels. There is something here for all ages and all interests. It is easily accessible from Europe with flight times from as little as six hours. If you haven’t discovered this fascinating country, please explore this site and maybe you will decide to visit Cape Verde…
