Must-see Places in Cabo Verde
The sun shines bright in this coastal destination. Crystal-clear water and white sandy beaches makes it ideal for relaxing; it is also used as a starting point to discover other neighbouring islands. Wind and kite surfing are quite popular here.
In the northwest of Sal, is Buracona, a bay and a lagoon, one of the island’s major attractions. An underwater cage known as the ‘Blue Eye’ draws tourists at large.
Pedra de Lume
It is an old volcanic crater with a salt lake. Swimming in a maximum depth of two feet is an experience in itself, with the high content of salt making it easy to stay afloat. Swim or float, take your pick.
The landscape of the third-largest island of Cabo Verde is characterised by mountain ranges, deserts, and of course beaches with small oasis surrounded with palm trees. From whale watching to windsurfing, or diving to spot shipwrecks, there is so much to do while in Boa Vista.
The view of chains formed by fine white sand hills is one to die for. Viana Desert is the only sand desert of Cabo Verde. A quad bike ride or a quiet walk on the sand, either ways the experience is an unforgettable one.
Ribeira Grande is the vibrant capital of this jaw-dropping island. The south and west of the island is barren while the rest of the area surprises with its rich fertile land. Hiking is the top activity preferred by tourists.
