Cape Verde Tips provides a great insight into what the Cape Verde Islands has to offer. Holidays and flights to Cape Verde have become more popular over the winter with Scandinavian and UK tour operators offering more flights to Sal Island, Boavista and soon to Sao Vicente. TAP has already announced that they will have a number of planes flying into Sao Vicente from Lisbon as soon as the license is issued to the airport. I am not aware of arrangements to start flights from the UK direct to Sao Vicente.
Some Expats are choosing to fly via Europe to reach their final destination. There are some cheap alternatives with flights to Dusseldorf, Brussels and other routes to choose from. Italians also fly direct from Italy with flights from Rome, Milan and a few other airports.
Cape Verde offers an all round sunny and warm climate. The long white sandy beaches of Santa Maria on Sal Island and up the south east and west coast make it a great location to come and participate in water sports activities or to just have a relaxing holiday. Blue seas, kite surfing/boarding, wind surfing, fishing and scuba diving make it the place to visit. Others come to Cape Verde to sunbathe, lie on the beach or swim in the warm seas and enjoy the relaxed and non crowded beaches of Sal and Boavista. Hotels are stretched along the coast line or are nearby to restaurants, bars, other accommodation within Santa Maria, Sal Island. Boavista has more white sandy beaches but much less as regards restaurants and bars or things to do.
Some people may prefer the mountains of Santo Antao, Sao Nicolau or the cultural city of Mindelo. Hikers and cyclists have their own preferences as to which islands they want to visit. So why not come visit us.
