A NATURAL WAY TO GET THE LUNCH!
The Boavista island, like the whole sea in Cape Verde, is very fishy and lends itself easily to fishing from the boat or the beach. It is possible to catch various types of fish, with a certain ease, but this activity is thought to have fun and spend a very different day with your family or your friends. The islet of Sal-Rei, called Djeu or Ilheu (small island) is a fantastic spot for picnics and entertainment, usually on weekends and is a perfect place to camp with a table, a grill and a fridge full of ice-cold beer to enjoy the freshly caught lunch.
The beach of the islet is wonderful, quiet, where you can play or swim in total relaxation. A few steps from the beach, there is the old fort of the Duke of Bragança, a historical exhibit that can be visited by feet, where you can still see the cannons that were used in the past to defend Boavista from pirate attacks. Cooking a grilled fish is an experience that some of you have already tried, but fishing from a boat floating in the middle of a crystal clear sea, preparing it on a beautiful beach, sipping a glass of wine or a local beer, is definitely even more rewarding.
