Sal Holidays

Catch the dreamy beaches of Sal before holidaymakers discover this underrated gem. The warm sands and al fresco restaurants will have you daydreaming of afternoon cocktails in the sun long after your return home!

Landing into Amilcar Cabral International Airport, you'll avoid long transfer times, knowing you're just a 20-minute drive from the south-coast holiday destination of Santa Maria. Hotels in this region range from modern to palatial in design, most of which resting on a stunning beachfront plot so you can get the most out of your trip to Cape Verde. All-inclusive is a common offering amongst the hotels but we can also find bed & breakfast options for those who'd prefer to fend for themselves amongst the island's fabulous restaurants.

If you're looking for a day trip, you're spoilt for choice! Paddle with harmless lemon sharks in the knee-deep waters of Shark Bay or hunt for the perfect sun spot to enjoy Cape Verde's national drink, 'grogue' - A type of rum commended for using the same production method as was used in the 19th century. Also historically known for salt production, the village of Pedra Lume in the north-west boasts mineral-rich bathing waters and fascinating day tours with antique machinery.

Adventurers and view hunters will be drawn to Monte Grande, the island's largest mountain. Visitors can enjoy incredible views and adrenaline-filled quad bike tours in this area, so be sure to add it to your to-do lists!

If you're stuck between Boa Vista and Sal, you'll be pleased to hear that daily catamaran cruises are available between the two destinations, allowing you to experience the very best of Cape Verde.
