Cape Verde – The African Caribbean
Cape Verde, sometimes known as the African Caribbean, is a group of 10 islands (9 inhabited) found in the Atlantic, approximately 600km west of Senegal and south of the Canaries. Although they have remained relatively below the radar until recently, they have a lot to offer visitors with flights under 7 hours from the UK and much of Europe and yet they are still untouched by the masses. There is a lot to do – turtle watching, whale watching, surfing, kite surfing, swimming, diving, dancing, hiking and entertainment with a taste of Africa. Each island has something different to offer including beautiful beaches, lush forests, mountains and deserts all in a tropical climate. The people are friendly, they speak Portuguese and Creole. Music, dancing and the arts are important to Cape Verdeans.
