Discover Boavista Island

With its white sand dunes, palm and coconut trees, Boa Vista has enough to attract today's Robinson Crusoes, as this tall sand dune looks like a faraway island. It is perfect if you want a beach and ocean all to yourself, as you probably won't come across anyone else here.... It is also a very good spot for windsurfing (the UCPA base is on this island).
