Insider’s View

Cape Verde is a small archipelago and island country in the central Atlantic Ocean made up of 10 ten volcanic islands northwest of the coast of Africa. Discover by the Portuguese around the 1450’s Cape Verde was uninhabited so you will see strong Portuguese influence as well as African and Brazilian in the buildings, music, fashion and food.

Boasting long sandy beaches, lively surf, quaint towns, modern hotels, superb diving and with the bonus of only a six-hour flight away from the UK with year-round good weather it is fast becoming a hot spot tourist destination and even more so within the diving community.
