The Barlavento Islands region
A land of sand dunes and a sea of turtles - Boa Vista is an island of sand dunes, long white beaches, and crystal clear emerald sea. The beaches are some of the most stunning and unspoiled in the world, with many only reachable in four-wheel-drive vehicles or quad bikes. The island's interior landscape is almost lunar like. Off shore, the location of Boa Vista means that the island attracts a large variety of wildlife, from mating whales to exotic seabirds. Boa Vista is home to the third largest breeding site in the world for Loggerhead Turtles, making it a crucial location for turtle conservation. The coral reefs surrounding the island are also of major environmental importance, with the João Valente seamount — an underwater mountain range between the islands of Boa Vista and Maio — having an unusually high concentration of fish and other species.
Boa Vista is often called the Isle of Sand Dunes, and it's easy to see why. For the island, the third largest of the archipelago that forms Cape Verde, is one long sandy beach which steadily rises in the middle, only to slope gently back down to the turquoise blue sea on the other side. It boasts more than 35 miles of stunning white sandy beaches – most of which are almost deserted and refreshingly unspoiled.
Measuring 240 square miles, the island is large by Cape Verde standards but its population of just over 6,000 is the smallest of the inhabited isles. Most of the locals live in the capital Sal Rei, or in nearby Rabil, where an international airport was opened in 2007.
Unsurprisingly, the new airport has been extremely instrumental in opening up the island to tourism, and in 2010 Boa Vista attracted more than 50 per cent of all Cape Verde visitors. A staggering 90 per cent of all the island's hotel beds were occupied in the last quarter of 2010 compared to just 48 per cent of those on neighbouring Sal, according to the latest figures by the National Statistics Institute (INE).
A tropical climate
The island, which means 'good sight' in Portuguese, is the most eastern island of Cape Verde and the nearest to Africa, which lies approximately 280 miles away. Sailors are understood to have shouted 'good sight' in delight when the island first came into view by Portuguese explorers in 1480. They had been caught in a terrible storm and were thrilled to see land. Boa Vista, like Sal has a near perfect climate and has very little rain. It is starting to get a name for itself as a destination for windsurfing, due to the north-easterly trade winds which blow consistently from October to June.
