Locations such as Sal are well-known for their picture-perfect seaside settings, creating the perfect opportunity for well-earned day of relaxation.

There are also a number of great activities to be enjoyed at Cape Verde’s many beaches, including half-day cruises around the chain of islands, and even walking with the many turtles who journey to Cape Verde each year to nest and hatch their young.

Food & Drink in Cape Verde

There is no shortage of hearty homemade-style food to be found amongst the Islands of Cape Verde, such as curried meat and vegetable dishes. While those who enjoy plenty of steak on their vacation may find it a little hard to come by (it is available in the ‘touristy’ areas, however it can be a little expensive), other meats such as chicken dishes are plentiful and are often great value for money. Restaurants such as Quintal da Musica in Santiago offer an interesting blend of delicious African and international food to a backdrop of authentic live local music.

Those who have a sweet tooth are also sure to find a dish they love during their visit, with a delicious range of cakes, fruits and ice creams available in most well-established eateries. Visitors can also expect to find an array of familiar beverages available across the islands, so you won’t have to look far for a cold beer or a nice glass of wine!

Useful Tips for Cape Verde Holidays

The local currency in Cape Verde is the Cape Verdean escudo (CVE). Typically 1 pound (GBP) fetches over 120 CVE. Many establishments accept payment in the form of Euros, however visitors are often advised to exchange their money for CVE in advance and pay in the local currency to avoid losing around 10% during the exchange of each transaction.

Visitors from the UK are not required to have any vaccinations before travelling to Cape Verde, however it is advised that they have Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Tetanus / Diptheria / Poliois immunisations as a minimum.
