Late deals to the Cape Verde Islands. From £655 pp
Much of the Cape Verde nightlife is low key and often hotel based, but the locals’ lively spirit is evident in the evenings, when you can just as easily join them in a disco shimmying to the local rhythmic beats as you can relaxing at a beach bar café, listening to the waves lapping ashore.
Music making is everywhere, and a visit to the Cape Verde islands would not be complete without experiencing the unique Cape Verdean ‘morna’ music; a combination of guitar and violin music often put to lyrics about love.
Saying this, some islands are livelier than others - Mindelo and Santa Maria are the liveliest towns with a vibrant buzz of music and local dancers and Boa Vista is the quietest, with little nightlife outside the hotels.
