Family Travel in Cape Verde

Cape Verde is made up of 10 islands off the coast of West Africa and with year-round sunshine and a 5-hour flight from the UK, is a great place to enjoy some winter sun. Although there are some big chain all-inclusive hotels, mass tourism hasn’t taken off in the main holiday destinations of Sal and Boa. If you’re looking for an off the beaten track beach destination with the all-inclusive comfort you’re used to, Cape Verde holidays will provide that.

If you can tear yourself away from the beaches, there’s lots to see and do in Sal from wading with baby lemon sharks to visiting salt mines and running up sand dunes.
