Unnamed Road, Sal Harbour, Sal, Cabo Verde
The following information is considered to be the information provided by the port.
The Sal-Rei port is located on the island of Boa Vista which in terms of surface is the third island of Cape Verde. The Boa Vista is characterized by its strong touristic potential, having nowadays a certain need of building bigger and better port infrastructure in order to adequately respond to the development and the foreseen traffic increase. Sal is an island in Cape Verde. It belongs to the northern group of islands, called Barlavento. The island is 35 km long and about 12 km wide. It is one of the three sandy eastern islands (Sal, Boa Vista and Maio) of the archipelago, with white sandy beaches. Sal Island has on average 350 days of sunshine a year. Winds mainly blow from the northeast. However, some days do also have clouds, but they tend to be scattered and seldom bring rain. The ‘rainy season’ is from July to mid-October, although rainfall is still low. The port lies on the western side of the island of Sal, on the north shore of a large bay. Sal is 40nm north of Boa Vista and is one of the most tourist-orientated of the cape Verde islands. It is a small, friendly town. Due to the prevailing winds, the anchorage is generally very sheltered. It has been reported to be a very hospitable harbour, however dinghy and outboard theft have been a problem here in the past. It is not advisable to enter at night here because of the various wrecks, and also the lighthouse might not be working. Most of the lighthouses in this area of the Cape Verdes are dilapidated and don’t work. Choose from our available boats (use the detailed search engine) and make a reservation.
