|Further details outdoors|
If you like adventure, then hire a quad bike and visit one of the many sand dunes or beaches that the island has to offer or why not try windsurfing, kite surfing or scuba diving. Deep sea fishing, catamaran trips or whale/dolphin watching are also available on the island. The resort has its own windsurfing/kite surfing hire and tuition facilities.
The Ilha do Sal region
Cape Verde is only 5.5 hours from the UK with no time difference, therefore no jet lag! The international airport is only a 15 minute taxi ride to the apartment (10 Euros), therefore hiring a car is not essential as most of the facilities are within walking distance. Taxis are plentiful on the resort, in Santa Maria and also at the airport.
The quaint little town of Santa Maria, with its numerous bars, restaurants, shops, banks etc is only a pleasant 20/25 minute walk away. A visit to the salt lakes, which are situated in Pedra de Lume is worth a visit or take a look at the main capital of Espargos. A trip to the Blue Eye in the northern part of the island is also well worth a visit.

"Good apartment in a decent resort in a nice part of Sal"
We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year. I think in general the description of the apartment and the facilities was accurate. Thomson gives it 5 "T"'s but it isn't 5*, … More

"Excellent accommodation in a good resort with great weather"
441 provides great accommodation - clean, nicely furnished and spacious with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower room, well equipped kitchen and good sized lounge/diner. The south facing terrace is a real bonus for evening sun and relaxation. We didn't eat in the hotel (it is expensive to take the all inclusive route) but preferred to go into Santa Maria for breakfast and evening meals. We used the shuttle bus in the morning or walked via the beach and took taxis at night. We really enjoyed our stay and would book again. You cannot beat the weather for a short-haul holiday in February 2014 - it was 25 degrees virtually every day with a lovely breeze.

"Quiet and Relaxing"
The owner of the apartment at Melia Tortuga was very helpful through out the booking process. The info pack that was supplied was also a great help.
On arrival at Tortuga we were greeted with drinks and were checked in within 5 minutes. We then had a bell boy take our cases to our apartment and a standard hotel info pack was also presented to us.
The complex itself is kept to a high standard and the pool areas very clean.
We stayed SC so we tripped into Santa Maria most nights to eat and have a few drinks.
The apartment itself was very clean and in excellent condition with all the necessary amenities.
The beach was about a 2 minutes walk with plenty of beds, although entry into the water was quite rocky with a bit of care and common sense it really wasnt to difficult. The sea is quite rough so dippers should take care.
We will be staying again.
