Holidays to Cape Verde
If you think you’ve seen every exotic tropical destination there is to see, let us at Coop Travel introduce you to Cape Verde. Cape Verde holidays offer the tropical beaches of the Caribbean, with the mystique of West Africa. Still virtually undiscovered by tourism, late deals to Cape Verde offer you an unspoilt paradise.
Cape Verde is a republic of 10 beautiful volcanic islands, each one unique. Most Cape Verde package holidays are booked on Boa Vista, which has the finest beaches. However, since all the Cape Verde islands are serene realms of golden sand and turquoise waters, you can’t really go wrong.
Last minute holidays drop you into a Caribbean paradise of year-round sunshine and beautiful tranquil beaches. Uninhabited until the 15th century, when it was settled by the Portuguese, located midway between Africa and South America, Cape Verde is a melting pot of European, African and Brazilian cultures, expressed in everything from the food to the music. Along the shorefront, the traditional way of life goes on unimpeded, with wooden fishing jetties and boardwalks backed by villages of whitewashed houses. Nothing masks the magnificent backdrop of tropical rainforests and slumbering volcanoes. A Cape Verde holiday offers something unique - the Caribbean as it used to be.
With mass tourism an alien concept, bargain holidays to Cape Verde are surprisingly easy to find. You won’t see any high-rise apartment blocks or skyscraper seafront hotels. Cape Verde package holidays mean low-rise resort complexes, and authentic restaurants serving delicious local cuisine.
Boa Vista, one of the largest and least populated of the group, is known for its wonderful beaches. Dominated by the lush forested peak of Monte Estancia, colonies of sea turtles nest in the dunes, while traditional Cape Verde folk music drifts from beachfront bars. Cheap Cape Verde holidays on Sal offer an arid desert island overlooked by weathered volcanic hills. The endless white beaches are home to a fantastic array of watersports. We at Coop Travel recommend you book Cape Verde holidays now – before they get discovered.
