THE ISLANDS: UNIQUE EXPERIENCES & DISCOVERIES
At the crossroad of the three continents bordering the Atlantic Ocean there is an obligatory stop amidst them all: the archipelago of Cabo Verde. Of volcanic origin and positioned west of the Sahara Desert, Cabo Verde is made up of two distinctly different types of islands: Six, located more to the West, are characterized by their mountainous landscapes, whereas the remaining three are distinguished by their long sandy beaches, replenished yearly from the strong winds off the coast of Africa.
The islands are divided into two groups and referred to as windward and leeward islands. The former consists of the islands of Santo Antão, S.Vicente, Santa Luzia (unhabited), S.Nicolau, Sal, Boavista, and the latter, more to the south and west, is comprised of the islands of Maio, Santiago, Fogo, and Brava.
The uniqueness and characteristics of each island distinguishes Cabo Verde as an exciting tourist destination that leave all visitors with deep and long-lasting memories:
