Cape Verde

Only six hours flying time from the major airports of Europe, the volcanic Cape Verde archipelago, lying in the Atlantic Ocean off the bulge of Africa, is rapidly emerging as an inspiring holiday destination for those seeking something different.

The nine inhabited islands are bursting with their own individual character and unique musical culture, besides offering plenty of opportunities for relaxation or active pursuits.

The rapidly developing island of Sal is particularly popular, with long white sandy beaches luring European beach buffs and watersports enthusiasts.

The main tourist town, Santa Maria, near the international airport, is earning its place on the global map as a surfing destination, and also as a major draw for windsurfers and kite surfers, with its trade winds and winter swells.

A former Portuguese colony, Cape Verde is now a struggling Republic, scourged by drought in the last century, which prompted heavy emigration. Exploiting the natural assets of the islands by encouraging tourism has now become a valuable injection for the economy.

Apart from beaches, the islands also offer impressive mountains, volcanoes, delicious seafood and an interesting African/Portuguese cultural mix. The distinctive music of the islands, carried abroad by renowned singer, Cesara Evora, 'the barefoot diva', also adds to Cape Verde's character.

Most visitors utilise the inter-island ferries or domestic airline to explore more than just one of these somewhat barren and ruggedly beautiful islands, each of which has unique sights or experiences to offer. In a frenetic world Cape Verde remains slow, unsophisticated and secure, with a stable democratic government, ready to welcome those seeking a simple holiday far from the madding crowd.

Information & Facts

Climate

The tropical climate of Cape Verde is tempered by trade winds, with temperatures remaining constant most of the year. Temperatures average between 78°F and 86°F (26°C - 30°C) year-round, but it can get hotter on the flatter islands or inland. The weather does vary slightly from island to island in the archipelago, depending on each island's geography and location. There is almost uninterrupted sunshine from November to May but the winds usually keep the heat bearable.

The wind can be strong in Cape Verde and although it is great for making waves for surfing and the like it is also important to note that visitors should pay attention to the lifeguard warnings and flags for their own safety when the surf is powerful. The rainy season is during August, September and October; the amount of rain is rather unpredictable and Cape Verde has suffered severe droughts in the past. When it does rain the showers can be dramatic and sudden. The sea temperatures are lovely and warm which adds to Cape Verde's popularity.

The best time to visit the islands is between March and June (the best waves for surfers are found from April to June).
