Discover Sports and excursions

Cape Verde is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Boa Vista, and especially Sal, with its waves at Ponta Preta, is known around the world for its kite and windsurfing. It is characterised by its rough seas and a constant wind, especially in winter. The archipelago also has some renowned diving sites, especially for turtle-spotting.
For land activities, the island of Sao Antao is ideal for hiking, but if you're more of the lazy type or simply prefer to be by the sea, 4x4s seem to be most popular activity on offer, for visits to the sand dunes, for example.

An excursion in the dunes

When visiting the dunes, you just have to choose between a quad bike or a 4x4. Neither is ideal if you like to feel the sand underfoot.
