Cape Verde

Last updated: 21 January 2018
An isolated volcanic archipelago off the African coast, Cape Verde is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. The landscapes on the ten islands alternate from barren desert to verdant mountainsides and lovely isolated beaches.

Strong Trade winds make the islands a great destination for those who love water sports such as sailing or wind surfing and every year its shores attract windsurfers and kite surfers from across the world.

Cape Verde is a great destination for adventurers. Here you can dive in underwater lava tubes and shipwrecks now occupied by fish and coral, charter a fishing trip to catch game fish such as marlin, quad bike through the barren hinterland or mountain climb up peaks that reach two thousand eight hundred metres in height.
