Late deals to the Cape Verde Islands. From £577 pp
Much of the Cape Verde nightlife is hotel based, however the locals’ lively spirit is evident in the main resort areas at the weekends, where you can just as easily join them in a local restaurant, music bar or disco shimmying to the local rhythmic beats.
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 on São Vicentre and Santa Maria on Sal are the livelier towns with a vibrant buzz of music and local dancers and Boa Vista is the quietest, with little nightlife outside of the hotels.
