A thirty second walk to beautiful Praia Cabral
Walking distance to the island capital of Sal Rei which can be reached on foot during the day in around 10 minutes and in the evenings, by taxi costing 200 CVE (less than €2)
A short taxi ride from the International airport at Rabil. This costs a fixed fee of €10 and there are always plenty of local aluguers (taxis) waiting outside the airport at all times. If however, you would prefer this pre-booked, then we will be more than happy to arrange on your behalf
Although still completely unspoilt, Boavista has developed dramatically since our first visit in 2008 when there were no direct flights from Europe. The international airport has since been improved and there are now twice weekly direct flights from 3 UK airports, taking less than six hours. Various other airlines also operate direct flights from Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. Despite the current economic climate, growth on the island continues, with better infrastructure and more facilities being opened in the nearby area. We were quite excited to discover on our last visit that there are now even some roads!!!
Around the island, there are lots of traditional villages; diverse landscape; deserts and stunningly beautiful beaches to explore. For the more adventurous, hire a quad bike, scooter or 4WD or participate in scuba diving, windsurfing or kite-surfing. For nature lovers, take a trip whale watching or watch the famous loggerhead turtles hatching (both seasonal). We can recommend local independent tour guides who live locally, or alternatively, you can hire a local taxi if you want to create an itinerary to suit yourselves. We're happy to help with any travel arrangements.
There really is something for everyone in Boa Vista - enjoy!
*WIFI available via a mobile MIFI device, allowing to access your own WIFI network wherever you are (from several Smart Phones, iPads or Laptops). Required to purchase a SIM card for €14 which provides 5GB of data allowance, allowing you 2+ weeks of usage.
