Cape Verde beach

Cesaria Evora, the “Barefoot Diva” revealed to the world the beauty of her archipelago. Off the coast of Senegal, the “Small Country”, retains the strong imprint of Portuguese traditions. At the crossroads of Europe, Africa and South America, the Cape Verde Islands mix the influences of the three continents in a rich racial and cultural diversity. Before crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean or Brazil, Cape Verde islands are a traditional stopover for sailors. Each of the 10 islands is a journey in itself: desert beaches, amazing sand dunes of Boa Vista, volcanoes, lush valleys. Sal and Boa Vista are known mainly for their water sports spots and are very popular for their great beaches.
