Sal is just about everything you could want from a beach holiday. Year round sun, never too hot never too cool, no rain and no mosquitoes. All just 5 and a half hours from West Sussex.
You can spend all day just lazing by the pool sipping a caipirinha or two, or if you are feeling more energetic try one of the many dangerous water sports on offer, go fishing or take a 4x4 out and explore the island.
Though you have to visit Santa Maria which is about one mile from the villa. You can get here by a taxi (€5) wait for the local bus or alternatively if you have time walk along the beautiful beach and stop off in one of the bars along the way.
Santa Maria itself is a wonderful quaint small town on the southern tip of the island. You can wander from shop to bar to restaurant all day and take in the unique atmosphere created by the mix of South American, European and African influences.
The town offers just about every cuisine from Indian to Italian but you must try the local fish dishes and grog, the Cape Verdians love their food and drink. You even have the usual Irish bar if you want to watch the match and mingle with some ex-pats.
The Island of Sal is the main tourist destination accounting for over 50% of all travellers to Cape Verde. They are drawn to the beautiful all year round climate, fantastic beaches and world-class water sports. Sal is certainly the most developed of all the Cape Verdean Islands from the point of view of tourism and caters for all budgets from 5* resort style hotels to small bed & breakfast and residential apartments. Sal is the gateway to the other Islands and therefore acts as an ideal base. Santa Maria which has just now been declared as a city, is situated to the south approximately 20 minutes drive from the airport.
The spectacular chalk white sandy beach is the glittering centrepiece to Santa Maria, the main tourist centre on Sal, and the clear turquoise waters are the main draw. Resort style hotels line the main bay, a haven for water sport enthusiasts. The beauty of the beach is its proximity to the main town, and most amenities and attractions are within a short walk from the beach. Forget big and bustling holiday destinations although this is the main tourist centre it is by no means over crowded and remains unspoilt.
The beach acts like a municipal park, especially in the early morning or late afternoon, where people exercise. See locals perform various acrobatics and also practise Copercia, a spectacular Brazilian martial art.
