Visiting Cape Verde is an unforgettable and exciting experience that will allow you to discover a lot of different opportunities in all their beauty. From relaxing on a sandy beach, climbing up a cliff, birdwatching, scuba diving, humming on morna blues, to having fun in clubs until the early mornings, Cape Verde has it all.

We know that prioritizing activities and choosing what to do on your vacations may not always be easy. However, we suggest you don’t miss out on our favorites. Immerse yourself in nature and explore some of the most astonishing beaches in the world: on the sandy island of Sal, make sure you visit both Palmeira with its underwater caves and hot springs to heal post-hiking achy muscles, and Santa Maria. Here, you can find all the comfort and luxurious hotels to treat yourself and just relax.

Still you’ll also have plenty of choices for outdoor water sports like jet-ski and scuba diving. At sunset, choose your favorite spot on the island, whether on a cliff, in the middle of the valleys in Ribeira Grande, in the streets of the picturesque city of Sao Filipe or laying on the quiet beaches of the island of Maio. Soak up the orange, stare at the sky, and see how many birds you can spot passing by through the colors of those astonishing islands!
