Honeymoon off the West Coast of Africa for Less

23 June 2010 - You & Your Wedding - Jane Anderson

Where do you honeymoon when you've already globetrotted all the usual hotspots? How about a tiny archipelago off the west coast of Africa with white-sand beaches and warm tropical seas – for just £699 each.

Escape to Parque das Dunas Hotel on Boa Vista, Cape Verde for a relaxing honeymoon that’s off the beaten track. It might be undiscovered, but it’s far from unexciting: there are seven miles of beach to bathe on if you’re sunseeking-types, or there’s windsurfing, kite-surfing and dune-buggy riding to get adrenaline junkies’ pulses racing.

For your £699 per person you’ll get seven nights at Parque das Dunas in a bungalow-type room with patio and sea view (many rooms lead even straight onto the sands), as well as flights, breakfast, resort transfers and taxes; and once there you can indulge at the open restaurant – which serves international cuisine and specialises in fresh fish and seafood – prop up the bar with a tasty tropical cocktail, or make a splash in the hotel swimming pool, all as you embark on
married life with a new adventure for you both.

Offer available from The Cape Verde Experience (0845 330 2071), based on two sharing, departing Bristol or Stansted in March 2011.
