Boavista in Cape Verde

The island of Boavista is the hottest and driest of all the islands in Cape Verde.

It’s just a short 20min flight from Sal, making it another attractive island if you like beaches, but prefer to avoid the crowds.

The island is the most affected by the hot harmattan winds from the Sahara, so it perfect for all kinds of great water sports opportunities near the capital Sal Rei. The interior on the other looks like a dry moon landscape with its desert-like landscapes. The white sandy beaches are stunning and are the third most important destination in the world for nesting loggerhead turtles.

Relax in a boutique coastal hideaway, or one of the larger all-inclusive hotels and explore this desert island by jeep. Humpback whales like Boavista too, as they have their young here and nurse them until they are strong enough to brave the Atlantic.
