Blog > 10-night holidays in Cape Verde
If a seven night holiday isn't quite enough time to completely unwind, why not take a few extra days on the beautiful Cape Verde islands?
Swapping the chilly UK temperatures for a healthy dose of sunshine and palm-lined, sandy beaches is highly recommended for those wanting to escape the cold this winter. With temperatures easily reaching the early-thirties between October and April, the islands of Cape Verde are a fantastic choice for winter sun, beach holiday seekers. Plus, when a week isn't quite enough, we offer both 10 and 11-night escapes too, so you can take a slightly longer, single or multi-centre break.
Below are just some of the options that we would recommend for 10 or 11-night holidays.
It’s no secret that beach holidays in Cape Verde are well sought-after, so what better way to get to know the beautiful sandy islands of Sal and Boa Vista than by embarking on a holiday to two of the archipelago's most popular islands?
You’ll start your holiday by enjoying the crystal-clear waters and soft golden sands of Santa Maria, Sal. Here you can also explore the assortment of water sports and the vibrant atmosphere of the town, sampling local and international cuisine at a variety of restaurants. What’s more, each day the pier comes alive with local fishermen bringing in their catch of the day to sell to locals and tourists alike.
The second part of your getaway will be spent on the quieter island of Boa Vista: home to some dazzling beaches and ever-changing landscapes. Saharan-like oases are dotted around the interior and depending on the time of year, loggerhead turtles can be spotted laying their eggs on the beaches. Quad biking along the sand is also a fantastic experience here, or you can head north to visit the Cabo Santa Maria shipwreck.
With this Island Duo Twin-Centre holiday, you can stay at two of our customers’ favourite properties…
Hotel Morabeza - 4.5 GRADE
An immaculately kept, family-run hotel boasting great facilities and direct access to Santa Maria’s golden beach - what’s not to love?
Explore the hotel, here.
VOI Praia De Chaves Resort - 4.5 GRADE
Boasting a remarkable location overlooking one of the finest beaches in the whole of Cape Verde, the all inclusive VOI Praia De Chaves Resort promises an unforgettable stay and is great for family holidays.
Does a relaxing beach escape with an injection of adventure sound like your perfect holiday? Combine Sal with Carnival for the ultimate escape next February. The archipelago's annual Carnival is a vibrant event, where the whole of Mindelo on the island of São Vicente comes alive in a flurry of elaborate costumes, live music and flamboyant floats.
Adding our 4-night São Vicente Carnival package to your 7-night beach holiday is the easiest way to ensure you get the best mix of relaxation and culture. This offers four nights (22nd-26th February 2020) on São Vicente, with return flights included from the island of Sal.
Staying at the Oasis Porto Grande Hotel means you’re in a great position to get involved with the Carnival celebrations, right on top of the main processions and in the heart of it all!
Oasis Porto Grande Hotel - 3.5 GRADE
A recently refurbished, comfortable hotel next to the central square of vibrant Mindelo.
You don't always have to island-hop during your time in Cape Verde. If you'd prefer to stick to just one hotel that's no problem at all - there's ample opportunity to relax and spend more time next to the pool or along the golden beach. Our ever-growing programme means we've got something to suit every taste and budget, but here are some of our top choices when it comes to a 10 or 11-night stay in Cape Verde.
Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort
Perfect for couples and families alike, this is an exciting and rewarding Hilton resort, based beside the stunning sands of Santa Maria Beach. Boasting everything from an incredible location and superb ethos in customer service, to a diverse range of facilities and unrivalled room options, a 10-night stay here promises to be a fulfilling holiday experience on the island of Sal.
Oasis Salinas Sea
Again for both couples and families, this all inclusive beach resort is set in a prime location along Santa Maria’s golden sands and just a short stroll from the main town. The hotel’s swimming pool is by far the focal point of the resort; ideal for when you just want to relax and soak up the sunshine whilst admiring the white sands right in front of you.
‘Morabeza’, locally translated as ‘hospitality’, describes this hotel perfectly. It’s glowing reputation and high volume of repeat guests show just how popular this beachfront gem is with holidaymakers. Boasting extensive, well kept grounds, this resort is the perfect base for beach-lovers and those wanting to relax by the inviting swimming pool.
