Horseback riding at Santa Maria beach
If you’re heading to Sal, then you’ll want to head to Santa Maria beach. It’s by far the largest beach on the island and links directly to the salt flats. Riding the horse across the expansive landscapes allows you and your party to unwind and see the island’s natural beauty peacefully.
Imagine that you have got the crystal blue sea on one side and the beautiful rainbow coloured salt mines on the other. It’s a view unlike anything you’ll have experienced before. And this becomes even more impressive when you ride at sunset.
Hike Pico De Fogo
For the slightly more adventurous, take a trip to Fogo Island and hike the trail to the summit of Pico De Fogo. This is the highest point in Cape Verde, and the vistas are spectacular. The route is packed full of picturesque villages, hidden treasures and plenty of photograph-worthy spots.
Experience the Dune Buggy in Boa Vista
The desert island paradise known as Boa Vista has gigantic dunes that are perfect for adventure. There’s something for everyone in Cape Verde, and for those seeking an off-road thrill, there are two options, dune buggy or off-road cars. Either way, you’ll have a blast.
Learn About the History of Cape Verde

The Cape Verdean Currency
