Island of the Dunes

Sprinkled with sand dunes and pristine, sweeping beaches where turtles nest, the island of Boa Vista has been attracting more and more visitors looking to explore its remote trails and picturesque shore.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia de Santa Mónica and Spiaggia Di Curralinho. There's still lots to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, admire nature's extreme beauty at Deserto de Viana, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Chaves, and stroll through Cabo Santa Maria.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Boa Vista tour itinerary maker site.

Lisbon, Portugal to Boa Vista is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Western European Standard Time (WET) to Cape Verde Standard Time (CVT), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Lisbon in December: highs in Boa Vista hover around 31°C, while lows dip to 24°C.
