For a slice of island life where relaxation is the name of the game, book a flight to Cape Verde – a firm favourite with the travel savvy.
Cape Verde’s cluster of islands floats just off the west coast of Africa. The contrasts are stark - you’ll see white sands and tropical greenery one minute, and volcanic hills dotted with pastel towns the next. And flights to Cape Verde open up a mix of cultures, too. African, Portuguese and Brazilian influences are everywhere, from the food to the language. But there is one thing this place agrees on – its beaches. Think Caribbean-style stretches where you won’t see another soul for miles. And because our flights to Cape Verde touch down in Boa Vista and Sal, you’ve got two of the best at your feet.
