Some countries are widely placed on the map, even heard most by both travelers and not so frequent travelers, that they are beautiful destinations; they have so much fun to get in there. For example, the US, Italy, Dubai, Singapore are some of the destinations any tourist can recommend to anyone to travel to. This destination is no-doubt shapely leg down into the waters of the Mediterranean.
Cape Verde is perhaps fair to say, is not one of these countries. It hides in the mid-Atlantic, a 10-strong cluster of islands which, born of volcanic fury, are as beautiful as they are mysterious.
BUT WHERE IS THIS CAPE VERDE?
Let your gaze drift down Africa. Look to the left flank of the continent. Go down through Morocco and Mauritania until you find Senegal – then drag your vision 350 miles to the west.
Jutting up from the Atlantic, some 500km west of Senegal, this stunning island chain has a captivating blend of mountains, beaches, and peaceful seaside villages. On Santo Antão, craggy peaks hide piercing green valleys of flowers and sugar cane, ideal for epic hikes

- HIKING ON LAGOA DO FOGO
For those who think that they can conquer any terrain, there is the Mount Fogo for them to hike. Grab a good pair of boots and get ready for the adventure of your lifetime. This is where you would see Cape Verde’s highest peak. This mount raises shyly out of Chã das Caldeiras’ ground, an ancient crater that last erupted in 1995 and it is still an active volcanic spot.
2. JET-SKII IN CAPE VERDE
The waters have become a haven for those who love jet-skiing. Of course, if you have never tried this water activity, this may be the perfect time to learn how to ride the waves like a dared devil. We must remind you that hundreds of tourists come to Cape Verde for this purpose.
3. JUMP IN THE VIANA SAND DUNES
Not far from the airport in Boa Vista, you’ll find some pretty amazing natural sand dunes which pretty much offers everything you’d expect to see in the Sahara itself, apart from camels. Good fun for kids of all ages!
4. GET AN OVERVIEW
You can see the whole of Boa Vista in less than a day, and if you take part in an organized tour, you’ll be taken to the famous shipwreck Santa Maria, then whizzed off by a 4×4 to the Santa Monica beach which is the island’s most spectacular stretch of sand.
5. APPRECIATE THE MARINE LIFE
Many species on Cape Verde exist nowhere else in the world. The variety of marine life that can be found in the waters surrounding the islands is particularly astonishing; so far scientists have cataloged 639 species of fish including mantas and whale sharks and more than 17 species of whale and dolphin, including the humpback whale. Marine turtles can also be found, as the islands are an important feeding area for five species. The highest levels of marine biodiversity are around Boavista, Sal, and Maio, which share a marine platform. Various locations across the islands also offer whale watching trips and turtle tours.
6. TASTE THE LOCAL DELICACIES
No trip to Cape Verde would be complete without trying out some of the local cuisines. By doing so, you’ll not only be eating some delicious food, but you’ll also be giving something back to the locals. Fish lovers, in particular, will be in heaven as the grilled lobster is superb, as are the fresh tuna, octopus and a multitude of other delicacies.
