We are seriously considering Cape Verde for a holiday in May/June time. Please can anybody tell me what kind of weather we could expect. I have been told that it is quite windy - but is this a cold wind??
Yes you are correct in thinking that Sal is a totally different island from Boa Vista, Cape Verde actually comprise of 10 islands and five islets spread over an area of 4,033 sq km (1,557 sq miles).
More info on The Republic of Cape Verde can be found here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/country_profiles/1021202.stm
I am hoping to get away somewhere, probably mid May. I originally wanted something resembling Goa in the late nineties (it is spoiled now by the tour operators). I spotted a brochure that had Cape Verde, and having done a little research, it sounds quite interesting. I am also considering one of the quieter Greek islands, but it is Cape Verde I really need advice on.
I am a single man in my forties, and I do not want lager louts, union jack t-shirts, screaming children, over-development etc. I do want peace and quiet, as this is really a complete break from a high stress job and a rather painful house move last year.
Has anyone been here recently, or know people who have? I would very much appreciate any comments anyone may have, or even pointers as to articles.
As for you it maybe better looking at the other hotels on Sal or the hotel on Boa Vista, if you just want to chill on the beach or by the pool all day Cape Verde is the place if we had not booked Barbados for our Winter 2011 holiday we would have gone back.Any more help I can be please PM me.
Some further info on my website below unfortunately not updated for Sal yet
And from people who have been before, is there anywhere / anything of note worth going to see?
Anything to see only islands not spoilt by mass tourism yet, just depends what you want.
The trips to the other islands then, what sort of prices were they last time you went?
Looking at the Iberostat Boa Vista ?????
Used to Goa that time of year but for one reason or another can't go so thinking oh here - happy to do nothing but lie on a beach / round pool eat drink can anyone comment???
thinking of going very end of july for 2 weeks. what sort of temperature will it be and will it be sunny or overcast?
We went to Boa Vista in November and the weather was glorious. Looks like the average temperature in January will be around 24 degrees.
thanks in advance
