Top 10 things to do in Cape Verde

Cape Verde remains untouched, we look at the top ten things to do while on the islands

1)Go island hopping. Nearby Boa Vista has beautiful white-sand beaches, while Sao Vicente is home to musicians and writers.

2) Experience the beautiful marine life by going diving.

3) Take a quad-biking tour of Sal, to experience its rugged natural landscape.

4) Get active with a spot of wind and kite surfing – or, if you’re feeling lazy, relax on Kite Beach and watch the experts.

5) Try a spa day with a difference. Sal’s mineralrich Pedra Lume salt lake is the perfect place to rejuvenate sun-parched skin.

6) Visit Turtle SOS. Sponsor a turtle, and you can release it into the wild.

7) Book a whale-watching excursion between May and September.

8) Barter for fresh fish on the pier at Santa Maria.

9) Chill out with a good book on one of Sal’s gorgeous beaches.

10) Watch the sun set with a chilled cocktail in hand.
