Cape Verde

Cape Verde Overview

Why should you visit the Cape Verde Islands? Well, their volcanic origins have led to a diverse range of landscapes from verdant mountain ranges and volcanic landscapes to deserted beaches.

With 10 islands and 5 islets, they offer something for everyone. Their mixture of African and Portuguese heritage is intoxicating and the locals welcome all visitors with open arms.

The largest of the islands, and the cultural centre of Cape Verde, is Santiago with its lush hillsides, jungle to explore and shipwrecks to discover. This is also where you’ll find the islands’ hectic capital, Praia with its colonial old town, busy shopping areas and beautiful beaches.

Once a former colony and slave trade outpost, the Cape Verde Islands of today offer a spellbinding blend of African and Portuguese influences in its architecture, food and customs. Look out for the national dish cachupa which has to be washed down by the locally produced grogue.

With a pleasant year-round climate, a Cape Verde Island cruise holiday will open up a colourful and diverse world all set to the gentle rhythms of West African music.
