The area and getting around
Located in the middle of the Atlantic, Cape Verde is a series of fantastic islands each with unique characteristics and attractions. The island is characteristic of an African destination with vibrant flea markets and loud music with strong beats to welcome visitors. It has a pleasant tropical climate coupled with a picturesque landscape that invites travellers to soak up the sun while enjoying outdoor activities such as hiking and watersports. Start your adventure in Santiago which doubles as the capital and the economic hub of the island nation. Tour the old colonial buildings dotting the city including the Cidade Velha, which is a World Heritage Site. Then head for the sandy beaches to marvel at the stunning landscape.Tour the summit
Cape Verde owes its existence to volcanic activity, so it is only fair to pay a tribute to this powerful force of nature. The Island of Santo Antao hosts Pico De Fogo whose Portuguese name 'Fogo,' means fire. Pico De Fogo is also the highest point on the island nation with its conical summit standing at 2,829 metres. Visit it and marvel at the picturesque volcanic slopes and the numerous lava formations that embellish the grey volcanic soil.
Travellers and activities
Visitors can hop between the islands by boarding the ferry that plies the islands. You can start the tour at Sao Vicente and dance to the music while viewing the monuments including former slave houses. The next stop is on Brava Island where the stunning Bay of Faja D'Agua invites visitors to soak up the sun. Head for Sal and marvel at its incredible desert landscape. Finish off by marvelling at the incredible volcanic formations on Fogo Island.Cape Verde for adrenaline junkies
Apart from being picturesque, Pico de Fogo has fantastic hiking trails that push climbers to their limit. The main trail starts at Cha de Caldeiras town and passes through lush green volcanic slopes to the Delgadinho mountain range. Tourists can also hire horses for riding and exploration. You can marvel at the coastline and the stunning rugged landscape or follow the trails leading to the saltpans. Those who are not into hiking can try the less draining sport of kitesurfing. The winds on the island are quite strong from March to November and allow both novices and pro surfers to enjoy the sport. Most of the activities take place on the islands of Boa Vista and Sal where guides help novices learn the sport.
The Loggerhead breeding sanctuary in Boa Vista is the third largest in the world.
