      Flights to Boa Vista, Cape Verde

      Going to Cape Verde and not visiting Boa Vista Island would be sacrilege! This paradise island is known as “fantasy island” because it combines an oasis, the desert, and the beach all in one. It is also the third largest of the Cape Verde islands. Its rich landscapes, many points of interest, white sandy beaches, and crystalline water make it one of the most prized islands by tourists. Summing up this island as white sand and stunning landscapes hardly does it justice, it has so many surprises in store for its travellers. You won’t be disappointed with your visit to this corner of paradise. It’s one of the best spots for taking photos of Cape Verde!

      In addition to being a perfect location for relaxing, the island offers numerous possibilities for the more sporting amongst you. There are opportunities to go diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, running, and you can even take part in marathons.

      So don’t wait a moment longer, and book your ticket for Boa Vista, Cape Verde. Boa Vista’s dream hotels await you!

      What to do on the island of Boa Vista, Cape Verde?

      1. Santa Monica Beach. Quite simply, this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Verde and the world! Turquoise water, white sand, unspoilt beaches... such are the qualities of this incredible place that is still protected from mass tourism. The only sound you’ll hear is the gentle lapping of the waves on the sand.
      2. Chaves Beach. This is the second beach that is a must see. As with Santa Monica beach, the landscape won’t disappoint you. Time will go by unnoticed as you stroll by the sea or over the white sand dunes, your choice. If you’re lucky, you might even see some whales!
      3. Deserto de Viana. What better than a short ride across the Viana desert on a quad bike? You’ll be able to take in several beaches in one day, and ride over the magnificent dunes that this desert has in store. What’s more, quad bike hire is very inexpensive!
      4. Cabo Santa Maria. Located to the north of the island, this wreck dating from 1968 has become an essential tourist spot.
      5. Discover the Oasis de Santo Tirso Vicente, have a swim at Ervatao Beach where you can find loggerhead sea turtles, and round off your travels in picture-postcard villages.
      6. Praia das Gatas is the best place to go if you want to dive and watch the marine fauna. It’s a nature reserve where you might be lucky enough to encounter pufferfish, turtles, and even sharks. You can also take a catamaran trip to see whales.
      7. Sal Rei is the island’s capital, and its highly coloured houses and lively night life make it worth a detour.

      Practical information for your trip to Boa Vista

      • Brussels Airlines flights arrive and depart from Rabil airport, which is 7.5 km from Sal Rei, the island’s capital.
      • Time zone: UTC/ GMT-1.
      • Currency: The currency in Cape Verde is the Cape Verdean escudo. This currency cannot be taken out of the country, so it isn’t possible to buy it outside Cape Verde. However, you can pay in dollars or euros for most things. You can pay by Visa, but only in large towns.
      • Telephone calls and Wi-Fi: The dialling code for Cape Verde is +238. Wi-Fi is only available in the island’s hotels and restaurants.
      • Electric sockets: These have a standard voltage of 230 V and are type C or F (European standard). If you use American or British plugs, you will need an adaptor.
      • Travel information: You will need a visa to enter Cape Verde. You have two options: you can either buy your visa at Rabil airport (but that can take some time given the significant number of tourists), or you can order it by post before your arrival (48 hours). You will need to present an identity photo with your passport, which must be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the time of the visa request. The cost for a visa issued at the airport is 25 euros, but if you choose the postal option, prices vary depending on the country in which you’re located. You will also need a copy of your hotel reservation and your return plane ticket. For all information on visas and travel documents, visit the website www.iatatravelcentre.com.
      • Vaccination: You should be vaccinated against yellow fever; no other vaccinations are mandatory. For more health information, visit the website www.iatatravelcentre.com.

      What to do and not do in Boa Vista?

      • During your stay in Cape Verde and on Boa Vista, the cheapest way to get around is by “aluguers”, pick-ups/mini-buses that leave once they’re full. The cost is minimal, but this isn’t the most practical way of getting around as there is no fixed timetable and there are fewer pick-ups in the evenings. (Make sure you plan when to return from hiking!)
      • The island of Boa Vista is known for its sea diving, but take care, because you are swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and the currents can be fairly strong.
      • Please note, the local authorities don’t like tourists walking about town without a shirt or suitable covering, or in swimming costumes, so remember to have a t-shirt and shorts/trousers with you to wear when out walking.
      • Getting to Sal island by boat from Boa Vista isn’t easy. You are advised to choose other options.
      • The main language in Cape Verde is Creole, although Portuguese is the country’s official language. In principle, English is spoken by all tour operators, and some also speak French.

      When to go to Boa Vista?

      Boa Vista has a dry, tropical climate. Temperatures are pleasant throughout the year, ranging from 25 to 30 degrees on average. January, October and September are the months with the highest rainfall. It’s best to visit the island after the rainy season, between September and mid-November. However, Cape Verde is pleasant all year round.

      So wear light clothes and don’t forget sun cream! On the other hand, do take a sweater or something for the evening as it cools down pretty quickly.

      What to eat in Boa Vista?

      As far as gastronomy is concerned, eat locally. This is a good way of ensuring you don’t pay too much since most products are imported to the island. Meals are generally simple but generous, and it’s a good way of supporting the local economy. You won’t be able to resist the “lagostada”, a typical dish prepared with limpets and crab.

      Cultural events in Boa Vista

      The Cape Verdeans take advantage of festivals to share their culture and wear highly colourful clothes! This is their opportunity to sing, dance, and exchange gifts that have been specially prepared for the occasion.

      • Santa Isabel (July): During this festival, you can see horse races, swimming races, ball games, and various highly colourful dances.
      • A series of small music festivals, including one in Santa Cruz, take place in August. It’s a good opportunity to relax whilst listening to tuneful music.
