Situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Verde, a tiny island nation of Africa, is a beautiful blend of majestic mountains, unspoilt beaches and peaceful atmosphere. Its stunning natural beauty, mild weather and secluded islands have made Cape Verde the top choice among beach lovers and nature enthusiasts.
The rugged country terrain lends itself to all sorts of adventure sports from hiking to mountaineering. The pristine Blue-Flag beaches, on the other hand, are great for relaxation and watersports. Mindelo, the northern port town of Cape Verde, is the cultural capital of the country, where old, historical buildings jostle with modern clubs and bars.
There are plenty of international flights connecting Cape Verde to the rest of the world. Start your Cape Verde holidays by landing at Amilcar Cabral Airport on Sal Island. Take a trip to Sao Vicente to check out the highest peak of the island, Mount Verde. Have a rocking night out at one of the many night clubs of Mindelo. Sao Antao, offers hiking and nature walking trails, while Boa Vista offers some of the most beautiful, wind-swept beaches. The small town of Sal Rei has a number of great hotels and resorts and is good for windsurfing, while the island of Sal, with its lively night scene and options for adventure sports, is perhaps the most touristy island in the archipelago. From family-friendly fun to wholesome adventure, holidays to Cape Verde are a great way to get marooned this summer.
