Discover Sal Island: Buracona Cape Verde

To the north-west of Espargos, a grotto enables you to catch a glimpse of a very light and clear turquoise blue sea. This is an ideal place for diving enthusiasts. Close by, a natural swimming pool allows you to bathe and benefit from the site. Be careful, sometimes this place is dangerous due to strong waves crashing on the volcanic reefs. There is an impressive mirage a few miles from there, which offers a striking and misleading sight. This could be one of the most beautiful mirages, and for those who would have walked for days and days in the desert, the illusion is perfect, however, they would be very disappointed not to find a drop of water or coolness.

    Just a few hundred yards away from the shore, the island of Curral Velho is a rock that has been classified an ornithological reserve (home to frigates and albatross).

    The site owes its name to the coral skeletons that shape the dune and the beach, and give it its incredible white colour.

    Despite the proximity of a new resort, Curral Velho remains almost deserted, much like the entire south east of Boa Vista.
