Best things to do and see in Cape Verde

Book flights to Cape Verde and enjoy an idyllic holiday filled with adventure. Ten volcanic islands make up Cape Verde in the Atlantic Ocean off Africa. They regularly offer visitors some wonderful culturally-rich events, bringing that old heritage back to life. With warm waters and great weather, island hopping is a must in Cape Verde, so tailor-make your trip to coincide with some of the large annual events and be prepared to enjoy the ferry rides or flights between the islands. Cape Verde Independence Day is held every 5 July in the main towns of each of the country's islands, and they are always a joy to witness, with food, music and lively celebrations throughout. The Carnival of Sao Vicente is one of the more commercial events and takes place every Easter. It is a huge event full of colour and fun and a great time to visit the island as a tourist. August is the month of the Santa Maria Music Festival, which attracts people from across Africa to witness more traditional music. In May, the Gamboa Festival brings international DJ's and musicians to the island of Praia for a large event that sees foreign tourism spike.

With your flight deals to Cape Verde booked, it's worth sampling some of the country's traditional dishes that can best be described as 'comfort food' rich in flavour. Cachupa, the country's national dish, is a stew made from root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, maize, onions and green bananas. Seafood is commonly used in popular and always fresh dishes. The octopus stew Baga and the concho-based Buzio Cabra are widely favoured by locals and tourists alike. The rum-based drink Grogue is still frequently made, consumed, exported and remains a firm island favourite, inspiring many local folklore songs amongst the Cape Verdeans. Another popular drink is Strela, the most popular beer on the islands that still enjoys local production. Corn, beans, and rice are staples in various delicious dishes served in all the local restaurants, and fish, such as tuna and sawfish, is popular with locals, too. Delicious, rich and hearty, Cape Verde food is worth enjoying at its most traditional.

Cape Verde is famous for beach lifestyles and all that comes with it. With some famous stretches of beach made popular by tourists as well as lesser-known, sometimes more favoured locations, watersports such as kite surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving are all highly popular pastimes around the islands. Old towns such as Santa Maria offer a glimpse at the heritage of Portuguese colonial days and the islands' subsequent independence, making for interesting history tours. Of course, coffee shops, restaurants and street music can be found everywhere, too. Santa Maria Beach is famous for peaceful, horseback riding tours at sunset or, if you're feeling more adventurous, try hiking up the highest peak in Cape Verde, Pico De Fogo on Fogo Island. The island of Boa Vista offers dune buggy drives for adrenalin seekers, whilst turtle tours are highly popular too, as one particular beach beach is a fertile breeding ground for these reptiles. The incredible Pedra Lume Salt Crater offers you the chance to float in salty waters, offering an amazingly unique experience. The Cape Verde islands offer the perfect relaxation holidays with some great rustic lifestyle activities in between.

UK residents can visit Cape Verde for a period of up to 30 days without a visa. In place of a visa, you should register with Cape Verde authorities on the EASE website. When arriving by air, you will need to pay Airport Security Tax. Ensure your passport is up to date and you have visited your local Travel Clinic to find out what vaccinations you may need, as African countries sometimes require Yellow Fever certificates upon entry.
