Landscapes of Boa Vista

Boa Vista island is a holiday destination, whose best heritage is its paradisiacal beaches and landscapes. The desert appearance of this volcanic land in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean makes Boa Vista a unique place to visit, with beaches stuck between large dunes and with crystal clear waters.

The wind forms waves on the sand, between the blue of the ocean and the brown tones of the arid and rugged landscape of the island. Its intense light, its volcanic landscape and climate, and the clarity of its waters invite you to relax and rest, with 350 sunny days a year. White sand, fascinating sea view and pure nature.

The beaches of Boavista, unspoilt and with perfect conditions for the practice of sports such as scuba diving, kite surf, windsurf and snorkelling, are considered between the most beautiful ones in Africa, and they are ideal for a getaway for two or to enjoy a holiday in the sun with your family. If you are planning a trip to Boavista, or looking for local points of interest, discover some of the best beaches for an unforgettable holiday in Cape Verde.
