The Tortuga Beach Resort is near Ponta Preta beach is a haven for sun worshipers with its crystal clear waters and pillow-soft white sands.
Cape Verde climate is pleasantly tropical with year round average temperatures between 26 and 30 C, but do not be fooled by the slight breeze which whilst really welcoming, can mask the suns intense rays, so make sure you take some strong sun cream. Incidentally, talking of "masks" the friendly locals have some incredible hand carved wooden masks and ornaments and it is worth going into Santa Maria town to look at the various carvings and jewellery items they have for sale in shops and mini markets.
There are plenty of lovely restaurants and bars, including Hotel Odjo d'Agua, Morabeza Beach Club, Ocean Bar and many others enjoy live music in some of the bars which is a key attraction.
There are no large crowds on Sal Island, only quiet towns and a few hotels, and is an ideal destination for anyone seeking peace and quiet. In the main town of Santa Maria you can hire Jeeps, quad bikes and bicycles. The motto displayed on T-shirts and signs around the Island make perfect sense: 'No stress, Cabo Verde', and this is Cape Verde: 'No stress'. None at all!
