Miles of sandy beaches in a year round destination
Nightlife in Cape Verde is quite low key and mainly consists of traditional live music known as “morna”, a kind of lilting folk music, although the tempo is sometimes raised by the tango or salsa beat. The shopping is quite muted too with markets and craft shops being the main attraction.
Most of the islands are accessible by ferry with airports at Sal, Santiago and Boa Vista. The islands of Cape Verde differ quite a great deal, with some being baron and desert like while others are lush and green. Whichever part of Cape Verde you choose to visit, you are guaranteed a laid back holiday in still relatively quiet and unspoilt islands. Cape Verde holidays are available online at Latedeals.co.uk
