Discover The beaches on Sal Cape Verde

The best island for beach side activities is Sal, along with the colourful village of Santa Maria, which has miles of fine sand. It is not surprising that the few good quality hotels of the archipelago are here. The island is also very well known for windsurfing: a lot of professionals train on the Santa Maria. Underwater diving has developed in recent years: the intact seafloor, warm water temperatures, and the presence of exotic fish are the main underwater assets.

    Although they are for the most part long and idyllic, some of the beaches making up Sal's coastline are completely deserted.

    A little less than 2 miles long, Santa Maria beach is home to most of the hotels on the island, but this doesn't make it any more spoilt.

    The large beaches at Ponta Preta and the Algodeiro Bay are very beautiful but they are not conducive to swimming.

    The beaches in Cape Verde are all public but hotels nevertheless provide their own deckchairs, parasols, and sometimes a bar.

    Even though this is the most popular beach with tourists, Santa Maria is rather quiet in the summer. In winter though, the hotels are full and the sea is very rough.
