Sal island Cape Verde

When most people in the UK talk about ‘Cape Verde’ it’s probably Sal island they’re thinking of.

For many people the fantastic white sands of the southern beaches are quintessential Cape Verde. And why not – the beaches are truly amazing, the water sports are great with good diving, wind and kite surfing, and there are plenty of high quality all inclusive hotels lining the shores. Direct flight connections from several regional UK airports mean Sal is easy to get to.

Staying on Sal with us, you’re most likely here at the beginning and end of a wider island hopping tour of the nine islands of Cape Verde. Whilst you’re on Sal, we’ll point you towards characterful accommodation like the wonderful Hotel Morabeza, on the edge of Santa Maria town and from where it’s a short walk to town or beach. Or in town there’s the Odjo d’Agua with it’s enviable position on the ocean front of Santa Maria. If you do want some all inclusive luxury then stay with us at the Sal Hilton, newly constructed and with full facilities including it’s own beach bar.

On the approach from the air, the island appears below you like a long-forgotten desert island. But although mostly barren, there is a lot more to Sal than its popular beautiful beaches and bustling Santa Maria. To the west, the Pedra de Lume salt pans stand out and you’ll spot the half moon bay of Santa Maria to the south.

On an island tour with our guides you’ll see Buracona inlet with it’s black lava rock. Cape Verde’s a windy place and usually white waters are crashing over these black rocks. The nearby Blue Eye is an underground pool where experienced divers dare to dive through the underground tunnel that eventually comes out into the sea.
