Soak up the African sunshine... 

During the winter months, holidaymakers can expect to enjoy temperatures averaging in the mid to late-twenties and clear blue skies. December holidays are wonderful, and ideal for those who want to escape to warmer shores for the festive season, and anyone looking to embark on some water sports (for which the islands are well known for), then anytime in between November and March is perfect.

It's easy to go and explore other islands...

We highly recommend that holidaymakers embark on some island hopping when in Cape Verde, as each of the archipelago's islands are so unique. Why not spend some time during your winter sun holiday hiking on Santo Antão, or getting involved in Mindelo's famous Carnival on São Vicente? There's so much culture to experience beyond the beaches, and the longest inter-island flight is only 45 minutes!

There's so much to do! 

Although the winter months present the perfect pastime for beach lovers, for anyone wishing to be more active when on a winter sun holiday, there are plenty of excursions, tours and activities to get stuck into. With everything from quad biking and island tours through to walking and all manner of water sports, there's an ideal activity for everyone.
