What you'll be doing

Sal, Cape Verde

We stay on Cape Verde’s main island, Sal, whose endless white beaches lie in the middle of the turquoise-blue ocean. The island has a coastline that would rival any of the Caribbean’s, where warm trade winds means that an array of water sports are available. In addition there is the hustle and bustle of the capital Santa Maria where colourful painted buildings line the streets and also where there are an array of craft shops, market stalls, restaurants, cafes and bars to explore and try.

Five-star Adults-Only Riu Cabo Verde

The adults only Riu Cabo Verde is a great choice for a relaxing beach break – it’s right on the sand! The hotel boasts has an All Inclusive programme and the opportunity to use the facilities of its sister hotels which are very close by. With close proximity to Santa Maria (1.5km) there will also be plenty of opportunities to get out and about in the local area if you fancy a little time away from the pool or white sand beach.

More to explore in Sal

Away from the beach, this beautiful island has a lot to offer. A trip into the pretty west coast port of Palmeira is a must. The name means ‘palm tree’, and its cobbled streets and lined with these exotic trees, we can also find brightly painted shops and cafes. The desert and mirages in Terra Boa are also worth a visit, the scenery is just breath taking! The salt lake; Pedra de Lume is another place to visit whilst in Sal. Situated inside the mouth of an extinct volcano, these magnificent lakes will have you taking nonstop photos. If you wish to take a dip, the water is 26 times saltier than the sea, which means that you will just float in it! Buracona is another must see. This natural pool is formed by the ocean into lava rocks. When the sunlight hits a certain angle, the waters glow in a magic turquoise blue giving a ‘blue eye’ effect that looks supernatural.
