About Cape Verde Islands

This small collection of islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean offers exotic views, a touch of luxury and huge variety in a truly stunning setting.

With flamboyant locals and a dynamic mix of cultures across the ten different islands there truly is something for everybody in Cape Verde. Sal is the destination if you’re wanting to spend your holiday living on the edge, as it has one of the top five beaches in the world for kite and wind surfing.

There’s no better place to sprawl out on the beach and watch the sunset, with each island having its own unique landscape, varying from volcanic, beach, desert and floral. It remains an untouched paradise for you to explore and it’s never been easier to island hop with improved transport links around the region.

We have over 80 hotels in Cape Verde for you to choose from and all of them showcase the very best that the islands have to offer. We also have flights from all major airports and can help with transfers to make your holiday as easy as possible.

When To Go

One of the main attractions of the Cape Verde islands is the year round sun and warmth that they provide. Each island has a slightly different climate and regions near the coast have the benefit of a cooling sea breeze. Even so, temperatures can reach as high as 40 degrees in some parts during the warmest months of August and September. Evenings can still be quite cool even during this time.

  • Island hop
    Just because you’re staying on one island doesn’t mean you can’t visit the others. All of the islands offer something different in variety so get out there and try as many as you can.
