Sailing Boat 'Kafeoli'
Sail along the coast of Sal with the opportunity to swim. A whole day on board a sailing boat or just a half-day sailing trip along this island’s southwest coastline is a fantastic experience. Leaving from the pier in Santa Maria (or the port in Palmeira depending on day of excursion), you sail along the northwest side coast. This gives you the chance to see the oasis of Fontona, the Lion Mountain and much more until you reach the beautiful bay of Murdeira. A swim or even fishing or snorkelling with a delicious grilled fish on board for lunch is a perfect way to spend part of your holiday!
