Cape Verde Family Holidays

The Cape Verde islands are a great place for children. A typical Cape Verde family holiday combines long sandy beaches, splashing about in hotel pools and organised activities, but also the opportunity to learn about people and culture.

Activities for Families

Kids generally love exploring, and the Cape Verde islands provide plenty of opportunity for adventure! Italian and Portuguese families have been visiting the islands for years and even though there are no waterparks or child specific attractions within the islands, there is an abundance of activities for younger ones to enjoy. Glorious beaches, and activities like horse riding, turtle spotting and volcano exploring are sure to prove unforgettable and exciting tales for back home.
