EVENTS IN BOAVISTA
Although for many there is no winter in Cape Verde, the island of Boavista is cooler and windier between December to March with temperatures ranging from 19º to 25ºc with exceptions. This is the ideal time for water sports. This period is recommended for sports such as surfing, kite-surfing or windsurfing, which are quite popular on the island.
The time of the year that is typically associated with the revival of terrestrial flora in various parts of the world, differs in Cape Verde, especially in Boavista, which has a more arid climate. On the island, spring comes with the arrival of humpback whales from the North Atlantic that can be seen on the half-day catamaran excursions.
In summer the island of Boavista is a paradise for sea turtles. Caretta Caretta turtles come to lay their eggs on the beach where you can see them at night on organized excursions or even on the quad or 4×4 bikes. The heat is not excessive, but beware of sunburn!
It is the rainy season in the Cape Verde archipelago: it rains very little, only a few days a year, and after this event, the island becomes lush and completely green. The humidity is a little higher, but the wind is beginning to be felt.
