    Cape Verde or Cabo Verde was a Portuguese colony before gaining its independence in 1976. Situated about 350 miles off the west coast of Africa, Cape Verde comprises ten islands with 9 of them uninhabited. Making a decision on which island in Cape Verde is the best to visit can be a more daunting task than expected. These islands are mostly deserts filled with mountains and have relatively few trees or greenery. They are dry and warm almost all through the year. Basically, they are famous for having sunny weather. This explains why they are the perfect vacation spots at any time of the year.

    Sal Island is the most famous and visited the island in Cape Verde. This is mainly because it’s the easiest to reach and the presence of the Cape Verde airport on this island has helped with its popularity among tourists. With its sandy beaches, it is the perfect holiday destination if all you want to do is laze on the beach all day. It also has a lot of hiking trails, natural salt lakes, fun-filled local night scenes, restaurants with delicious meals and amazing hotels and resorts available for bookings all year round. Tourists can also engage in other fun activities like windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, and sea fishing. If you are feeling adventurous, you can go swimming with the human-friendly Lemon sharks.
