Cape Verde is a group of volcanic islands some 500km off the west coast of Africa. Uninhabited until discovered and settled by the Portuguese in the 15th century, the islands are now a popular tourist resort. Much of this tourism takes place in purpose built complexes, so to get to know the real islands renting a holiday apartment in Santa Maria from 9flats is a better bet. Renting holiday accommodation in Santa Maria is a lot like couchsurfing in Santa Maria but gives you the luxury of more privacy and comfort in your own room or apartment. From your holiday apartment in Santa Maria you will be able to take part in the many water sports for which these islands are famous and also perhaps island hop and explore the fascinating interior and culture of these islands of some 500,000 people.
Enjoying Cape Verde from your holiday apartment in Santa Maria
Water sports are a big attraction of a holiday in Santa Maria. The islands are fairly windy and wind surfers flock here all year round. Cape Verde’s position, exposed far out in the Atlantic, means that the islands face the full force of the Atlantic breakers and the surfing here is therefore also good. There are also plenty of opportunities for boat trips, diving, kite surfing and other water sports. Alternatively, you may prefer just to laze on the beach at the highly rated Praia de Santa Maria. All of the usual features of a tourist resort are here but if you choose to look a bit closer you will find the wonderful atmosphere and unique sorrowful music of these Portuguese-African people.
Selecting your holiday accommodation in Santa Maria
Staying at a holiday apartment in Sal will allow you to explore the holiday town of Santa Maria with its beaches and buzzy tourist scene where the pier and town square are also popular meeting points. You can also visit the island’s capital, Espargos, and the main port of Palmeira. A holiday apartment on Sao Vicente meanwhile can enjoy Mindelo, the cultural capital of Cape Verde and once the largest harbour in this part of the Atlantic.
Moving on from Cape Verde
Cape Verde is a wonderful and unique mix of Portuguese and African cultures and you might want to explore a little more of each. A holiday apartment in Porto will let you explore this beautiful Portuguese city on the banks of the Douro river and taste its famous wine. A holiday apartment in Marrakesh meanwhile will expose you to the sights and smells of the markets and the fabulous culture of this popular North African destination.
