This stunning archipelago consists of 10 stunning beautiful and diverse islands off the West coast of Africa. Choose to visit for a beach break, a hiking adventure up incredible mountains on Santo Atao, a cultural break in Cape Verde's music scene in Sao Vicente or to visit an active volcano on Fogo.
The archipelago presents a variety of heritage; African, Portuguese and Brazilian. Although the official language was spoken is Portuguese as the country was part of a colony by the Portuguese but many locals speak Creole. As you discover the stunning island chain with its mountains, beaches and villages, try to find a place bustling and dancing and discover the real meaning of the word morabeza (Creole for hospitality). Discover Santo Antão, the best island on the peninsula for hiking. With its lush greenery, craggy peaks and wildflowers, you will forget that you are in Africa at all. For music and parties, visit São Vicente, the cultural capital of the islands. Sal and Maio, offer untouched beaches of pure white sand and Fogo and Brava offers volcanic landscapes that rise dramatically into the sky.
