The 10 islands of Cape Verde have an idyllic landscape, with stunning beaches, majestic volcanoes and dreamy sunsets to marvel at. Whether you are looking for a breathtaking adventure or a quiet escape with your loved one, the South African nation always has something to offer.
There’s plenty of sun all year-round and it’s perfect if you want to achieve that coveted tan. If you’re still contemplating why Cape Verde should be next on your to go list, here are 10 reasons that should convince you to take that trip now.
#1. Boom in Tourism
Tourism has helped in the boost of Cape Verde’s economy. In the 90’s, the island almost had zero visitors. But now, it has become one of the sought-after destinations in Africa.
#2. Diverse Islands
Different islands in the beautiful archipelago offer different kinds of fun and adventure. The easternmost part of Cape Verde is where people can chase the sun, taste the sea and enjoy the sand. The primordial isle, Fogo, is where an active volcano is found.
#3. Best place to disconnect
If you really want to get away from it all and take a break from social media, Cape Verde is the place to be. In a restaurant on Santo Antao island, an English language sign found at the door says, “Sorry, no Wi-Fi. Talk to each other and get drunk.”
#4. Smiling locals
Cape Verde is a place where you’ll find the most hospitable and friendly people.
#5. Black sand beaches
There are white sand beaches in the area, but you might also want to check out the equally gorgeous black sand beaches. You can still find secluded shores on the archipelago where you can reflect and enjoy the solitude – if that is your thing.
#6. Local food
When visiting other nations, trying the local cuisine is on top of the list of things to do. Go on a gastronomic adventure in Cape Verde where you’ll get to taste mostly a mix of African and Iberian dishes.
#7. Volcanic landscapes
Visit the mightiest volcano in Cape Verde — Pico do Fogo.
This 9,000-foot natural formation is already safe enough to climb and trek. The last eruption was in 2014 to 2015.
#8. Vibrant street art and architecture
Municipalities have commissioned artists to decorate buildings and walls on the island.
#9. Trekking adventures
Because of its topography, stunning landscapes and trekking trails, Cape Verde appeals to many adventure seekers.
#10. Water activities
Water lovers can enjoy plenty of activities in Cape Verde, including diving and Cape Verde cruise and itineraries.
