White sands, historical shipwrecks and the contrast of the capital!
Get the most out of your holiday by exploring everything the island has to offer in one single day by joining us on 'Kriolo'. To start you’ll head South to Santa Monica beach, the biggest and most beautiful in Cape Verde. This is the MUST SEE of Boa Vista! Consider it like a free massage in our 4x4 vehicles! There you can look in awe at the extensive white sands and turquoise water or take a dip and immerse yourself in one of the most beautiful untouched beaches! Many rate is as the best they’ve ever seen! Next stop will be Varandinha beach where we find the hidden caves along the beach. It’s a protected beach because of the loggerhead sea turtles which visit every year to spawn. We then head on to the oldest village on the island, called Povoação Velha. A village inhabited by farmers, fishermen and goat headers. Take a few minutes to visit them and immerse in the local culture before heading off for a traditional lunch in the old Capital of Rabil. Once you’ve tasted Boa Vistas delicious cuisine, it’s time to go off-road again for the second half adventure... The Shipwreck at Santa Maria beach, a ship wreck that is 50 years old now and holds some fascinating stories from life way back! We keep going and we find the capital Sal Rei City, to see where everything happens here in Boa Vista and a chance to get those bargains and souvenirs. Then because we started with the biggest beach, now we finish in Viana Desert a sprawling Desert of white sand dunes where you will see by yourself the magic of this unique little island!!
Very important: Sunscreen. Beach towel, camera and possibly bring a hat.
