What to Do
Cape Verde is know for its wonderful unspoilt beaches, translucent seas and its lovely people with smiles as warm as the Cape Verdian sun.
However, there are lots of activities to do on the island.
A visit to the salt lakes, which are situated at Pedra De Lume are really worth a visit or take a look at the main capitol of Espargos.
If you like a bit of adventure, then hire a quad bike and visit one of the many sand dunes or beaches that the island has to offer. Other activities include wind surfing (the world championships are held on Sal), kite surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, sailing, catamaran trips, or whale/dolphin watching.
Car hire is available but as most activities are all within walking distance, the expense of a car is not necessary, taxis are plentiful and cheap.
Various organised trips are available for all the above activities.
A BBQ can be made available if requested.
