Cape Verde Islands

The Cape Verde Islands have become more popular with British, Irish, European tourists and travelers who are able to take advantage of some cheap direct flights to Cape Verde for holidays through Travel Agencies. Obviously some flights will be more expensive during the holiday periods, but there are still some bargains to be found, especially at the last minute. here are a range of hotels and accommodation types from which you can choose. There are International flights to Sal Island, Boavista, Santiago and Sao Vicente. The islands of Santo Antao, Boavista, Maio, Fogo, Brava, Sao Nicolau will have fewer hotels to choose from. Sal and Boavista have some All Inclusive Hotels.

You may prefer to rent accommodation. There is more rental accommodation on the island of Sal, as there has been more investment in property on the island than others within Cape Verde. The climate here is good with plenty of warm to hot sunny days and is ideal for some winter sun. Sal has lovely beaches and an international airport which makes an ideal place to visit to chill out. Water sports activities including scuba diving are available throughout the year, although windsurfing and kite surfing are mainly winter time activities due to the wind and bigger ocean waves. Boavista is also popular and new flights are bringing in more tourists to the island. The summer period may be too hot and humid for some visitors to Cape Verde although the school holidays in the summer are popular with Italians and Portuguese. There are also flights to Scandinavian countries, Belgium, France and Germany and other countries. Check out Skyscanner. Below, some Chinese Expats living and working on Sal are checking out the drone used for making aerial videos on Sal.TT
