Introducing holidays to Cape Verde

The cluster of islands known as Cape Verde is diverse, rich in culture and with stunning scenery, but that description doesn’t do them justice. From the volcanic landscape to delectable cuisine you won’t find at home, this small family of islands plays host to a wealth of activities and attractions to satisfy all the senses. There’s a strong Portuguese influence, and you’ll hear the language across the islands, as well as Cape Verde Creole. Those seeking warmer climes will be delighted to discover the weather across the islands remains wondrously warm and dry throughout the year, with just a few inches of rainfall in September. The landscape is flat and dry, and the islands each have their own sweeping beaches and quiet coves - ideal for explorers and sun loungers alike. You would be forgiven for thinking you’re in the Caribbean when island hopping around Cape Verde; the crystal blue waters and stretching beaches mimic the fair shores of the West Indies, and the culture and cuisine is as diverse and encapsulating. Whether you’re a guest of Santiago, Boa Vista, Sal or one of the 7 other islands of Cape Verde, you are sure to find paradise.
