Santa Maria, Cape Verde
Santa Maria, Cape Verde

YOU might not have come across this beautiful place yet and if you haven’t, it’s ok.

Cape Verde is still a relative newcomer to the package holiday scene but it may not be for long. Lying just two hours south of the Canaries, off the coast of Africa, this ten-island archipelago in the Atlantic is a proper hidden gem just waiting to be discovered.

Boasting out of this world beaches and a lack of mass tourism at the moment, Cape Verde could be your dream destination this year, before everyone else unlocks the secret of these stunning isles.

Cape Verde is a real blend of cultures too. Having been discovered by the Portuguese, there are influences of Portugal, Africa and Brazil and you can taste the fusion of them all in the mouth-watering cuisine.

Sal, probably the most popular of the islands has a futuristic, lunar-like landscape yet it has a Mediterranean feel to it, with pretty little cobbled towns where you will find some lovely traditional restaurants.

Arguably, the big draw is is the beach. Stretching for around 8 kilometres, it’s a haven for watersports fans and sun worshippers. For serious beach lovers, neighbouring Boa Vista offers even more glorious, sun drenched sands and dunes.

Despite not being overly affected by commercial tourism or urban development, both Sal and Boa Vista offer some pretty impressive hotels and resorts.

There’s some real comfort as well as luxury to be found. talkholiday has compiled some of the top places for you to consider for your Cape Verde adventure.
