You ship will dock at the center of Sal Rei.
The easternmost and third largest of the islands, its name translates as ‘beautiful view’ – and plenty of wonderful vistas can be experienced here. Visit its capital, Sal Rei, to discover charming cobbled streets and stunning colonial architecture.
Boa Vista is the third largest island of the Archipelago Cape Verde. Similarly to the island of Sal, it is flat, and has a surface of 620 Km2. The Peak of Estância is the highest point of the island measuring about 390 meters. It is covered with white sand dunes, including the Deserto Viana which was (and still is being) formed by Saharan sand blowing over from mainland Africa. Oases of date palms are found here and there, and are the typical vegetation of the island. Boa Vista has 55 Km of white sand beaches and crystal clear water.
Miles of stunning beaches, some untouched and remote. Famous as the nesting sites of loggerhead turtles.
Organized excursions with the cruise ship will be using 4X4 Land Rovers or rugged coaches/minibuses.
