Why Cape Verde Is So Lovable?

Cape Verde Beach
Cape Verde is a place of immense beauty and culture, but for some reason doesn’t get the acclaim its other island brethren receive. Truth be told, it’s an amazing place to go for a holiday, which you can do with First Choice. The mix of volcanic islands and sandy beaches ensure that you’ll have a great time. Here are just a few reasons to love Cape Verde.

The islands

The islands that make up Cape Verde are as diverse as the people that inhabit them. You’ve got Sal, the most popular island for visitors. It’s the easiest to access, and greets visitors with clear water and pure white sand.

For a more relaxing holiday, there’s Boa Vista. This island boasts 55 km of beaches, without the busyness that can sometimes define Sal.

If you ever grow tired of the sand, then a trip to Santiago or Sao Vicente should be in the books. These two islands are considered the cultural centers of Cape Verde, with a renowned live music scene and plenty of markets and cafes dotting the landscapes.

Of course, you can’t mention Cape Verde and not refer to the island of Fogo, home to the Pico do Fogo volcano. This volcano is still active and rises 2,829 meters above sea level. It’s a real sight to behold.

The people

With its African and Portuguese roots, the locals of Cape Verde are welcoming and eclectic at the same time. Don’t be surprised if you come across a busy town square in Cape Verde towns, as it’s traditional for locals to walk around the town square to meet friends. This type of lifestyle lends to a group of people who love visiting, whether it be an old friend, or a tourist who’s visiting for the weekend. That’s why visitors will feel welcome, and are bound to learn something new about this diverse culture. This is reason in itself to make the trip.

Those are just a few of the reasons to love Cape Verde. Of course there’s the delicious food, the perfect locations for windsurfing and kiteboarding, and the perfect temperatures. It all adds up to a one of a kind holiday.
