Each island has its own appeal with varied landscapes, a unique cultural heritage and a variety of activities to suit all. Cape Verde has some of the best locations in the world for sailing, wind surfing and big game fishing. The islands are a year round destination only 6 hours from Europe (less than 4 hours from Lisbon). They are an ideal winter sun destination and a great place to escape the summer crowds of the Canaries or the Balearics. From picture postcard beaches, to a wide range of leisure activities, such as hiking, sailing, big game fishing, scuba diving, wind & kite surfing and mountain biking – Cape Verde has something for everyone. Many well travelled visitors to Cape Verde comment that these islands are what the Caribbean used to be like 40 years ago. We can only agree.
