First colonized by Portuguese explorers in the 1400's, the island country of Cape Verde is now a beach and tourism destination with easy access from Portugal and Spain via affordable flights. Located off the coast of Northern Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, the tropical climate combined with the mountainous landscapes and clear blue waters make an ideal setting for a relaxing vacation. Consisting of 10 islands with plenty of small cities and smaller towns, Cape Verde offers a variety of types of accommodation and various activities for all types of travelers.
Top Tourist Attractions
Cape Verde is made up of 10 major islands, and while each island is generally similar, each has its own character.

Visiting the beach is of course one of the most popular activities. Many beach-side hotels and resorts are available for those that want a relaxing vacation. Surfing, Kitesurfing and windsurfing, and other water sports are very popular.

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving are also very popular. The warm, clear tropical waters are teeming with undersea wildlife.

Hiking is quite popular, as much of the country is rugged and beautiful. One of the best experiences is to go hiking in Santo Antao where you can see not just beautiful mountain views, but also experience local villages, too.

Whale watching is popular during certain times of the year.

Hiking is also popular given the rugged mountainous terrain of the island interiors. Some of the areas are lush, while others are in the desert.

Getting to the islands is fairly easy with flights from Portugal and Spain to multiple cities on various islands such as Mindelo or Praia. Once on the islands, short flights are available to any of the other islands.
