Boa Vista

Boa Vista is one of 10 Cape Verde Islands, situated 500k west of Senegal in the Atlantic Ocean, The Islands of Cape Verde enjoy their own diverse culture, strong sense of history and identity that has been widely influenced by Africa, Portugal and Brazil, yet remain unique to the Cape Verde islands. The ten islands all offer something different, with enough beauty and beguiling charm for even the most seasoned traveller, along with a tropical climate and miles of beautiful light golden sandy beaches.

With flights under 6 hours from the UK, the small time difference and the friendly people, it is hard to beat as an all-round holiday destination, and still low key enough to feel like a bit of a discovery. Boa Vista is home to some of the most dazzling beaches on the archipelago covering a staggering 55km. it is also one of the nesting areas for the endangered Loggerhead turtles, and they be can be seen nesting and/or hatching at certain times of year. Plus the humpback whales spend time just off the islands with their babies Apr-Jul each year. Closest to the African mainland, Boa Vista is not only renowned for its stunning beaches but its marine life too. Nightlife here is very low key and mostly quiet with just a scattering of good quality and varied local restaurants and bars. Boa Vista is quite literally covered in sand and many buildings have been completely absorbed leaving an endless blanket of sand. A great example of this is on Praia da Chaves, an old ceramic factory covered in sand is still intact with machines in situ! Sahara like dunes in the interior of the island with sprouting date palms are an impressive sight and well worth a visit. Depending on the time of year you may even spot some turtles on the island's southern beaches. Boa Vista is thought to be the third most important loggerhead turtle nesting site in the world, with the favoured time of year for turtles to nest usually being during the months of June through to September. The miles of unspoilt coast line are excellent for you to enjoy uninterrupted walks as well as being a popular location for windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts. Other watersports such as snorkelling and scuba diving are available in addition to quad biking tours and line, beach and deep-sea fishing. There are several festivals on the island including the common music festival that takes place on Santa Cruz in August. The other main colourful festival is: Santa Isabel (Municipality Day) 4 July - The day of Santa Isabel, the patron saint of the island. Celebrated with processions, swimming, horse racing, tours and a public ball. Hot Tip for Boa Vista. In addition to turtles on the beach you may catch a glimpse of whales in the islet of Sal Rei, a feeding ground for humpback whales and a magical sight if you are lucky enough to experience it. Whale sightings usually takes place from April through to June.

About Nicky Kendrick

This is a picture of my husband and 2 children at Sal Rei habour. We are from the UK (Hertfordshire just outside London) and bought the apartment as we fell in love with the Cape Verde islands having been to Boa Vista on holiday. We have worked really hard to furnish the apartment to a high specification (not easy out there) and would love other couples or families to enjoy the wonders of this lovely island.

Nicky Kendrick purchased this apartment in 2009
