Beaches · Landmarks · Scuba & Snorkeling
The main islands of Cape Verde each offer something different, both in terms of natural wonders and cultural heritage. Descendants of Portuguese colonialists and African slaves, the locals mainly speak Creole and blend influences from Europe and Africa in their cuisine, music, and architecture. The largely unspoiled natural landscape includes mountain peaks, rugged cliffs, white-sand beaches, black-sand beaches, and wildflower-filled valleys. With the country experiencing a dry tropical climate, holidays in Cape Verde lend themselves to a range outdoor sports and activities, including windsurfing and lazing on a beach, hill walking, and diving.
