Our Guest’s Opinion

“My partner and I loved the simplicity and beauty of the place; it felt like home. Larissa, the proprietor, was just the most gracious hostess. Nothing was too much for her and her team. It was simply a magical experience all round.”

- Ms Lamptey
 

 

What we love

  • The peace and quiet – a holiday here enables total relaxation, you can switch off from everyday life and just enjoy some ‘me’ time.

  • All of the little touches in the rooms. Sea shells are often used for decoration and the cool linen drapes add a real touch of luxury, while hammocks and chill out areas add even more appeal.

 

Good to know

  • If you are looking for total relaxation, this is the place for you.

  • Due to Spinguera’s isolated location, we recommend upgrading to half or full board.

 

Tranquillity by the sea

Reached by a 4x4 journey along the old riverbed and through striking surrounding landscapes to the edge of the Norte National Park, Spinguera is truly unique in its location, as well as its sustainable ethos created by its passionate Italian owners. Once a settlement for farmers and fishermen, this beautiful lodge is now a peaceful haven, defined by an arrangement of stylish stone cottages that connect with their rural surroundings. The perfect spot for total rest and relaxation, Spinguera is blessed by beautiful ocean views and plenty of sun traps and shady hideaways in which to lay back.


Soak up the sunshine

While there is no pool, there are plenty of places to soak up the sunshine, whether that be in one of the hammocks or on the many comfortable cushions. The white sands and turquoise waters are also only a 10-minute walk across the dunes, where loungers by the ocean await you. Although the sea can be rough, the picturesque bay is simply idyllic and perfect for a stroll or a paddle. There is also a more sheltered cove which is safer for swimming, a further 20 minutes away.

In addition to this, the hotel’s restaurant, Ca’Cabra, serves fresh Cape Verdean and Italian cuisine, and due to its remote location, we recommend upgrading to half or full board.

Official local hotel rating: 3 star

About the Local Area

ABOUT THE ISLAND

Unspoilt expanses of beach and sea Boa Vista is home to some of the most dazzling beaches on the archipelago covering a staggering 55km. Closest to the African mainland, Boa Vista is not only renowned for its stunning beaches but its marine life too. Nightlife here is very low key and quiet with just a scattering of local restaurants and bars.

Boa Vista is quite literally covered in sand and many buildings have been completely absorbed leaving an endless blanket of sand. A great example of this is on Praia da Chaves, an old ceramic factory covered in sand is still intact with machines in situ! Sahara like dunes in the interior of the island with sprouting date palms are an impressive sight and well worth a visit.

Depending on the time of year you may even spot some turtles on the islands southern beaches. Boa Vista is thought to be third most important loggerhead nesting site in the world, with the favoured time of year for turtles to nest usually being during the months of June through to September.

The miles of unspoilt coast line are excellent for you to enjoy uninterrupted walks as well as being a popular location for windsurfing enthusiasts. Other water sports are available in addition to quad biking tours and line and deep-sea fishing.

BEACHES

The island of Boa Vista is also home to some of the most spectacular beaches in the archipelago with a dazzling 55km stretch of white powdery sands.  The most spectacular is Praia de Chaves, where the sand dunes have been sculpted by the winds into some amazing arcs.

FESTIVALS ON BOA VISTA

There are a few festivals on the island.  Plans change from year to year but normally there is the common music festival that takes place in Santa Cruz in August. The other main colourful festival is:

Santa Isabel (Municipality Day) 4 July - the day of Santa Isabel, the patron saint of the island. Celebrated with processions, swimming, horse racing, tours and a public ball.
