Our Cape Verde self-catering holiday on Boavista is the perfect trip if you prefer to be independent and want to avoid the crowds.
Laid-back and with some of the quietest beaches on Cape Verde, we have also included car hire, so you can explore the island on your own.
Between December and April, Sal Rei is the place to be if you want to spot humpback whales and their calves, or from mid- June to late October you can see loggerhead turtles crawling up the beaches to lay their eggs. Nurse sharks make an appearance in the quieter bays.
In the evening you could sit around the main square in Sal Rei, listen to live music and watch the world go by.
