Cape Verde Holidays
Cape Verde, a collection of 10 tiny islands off the coast of West Africa, nearly on the same time zone as the UK, hot weather year round, and only a six hour flight. It is not hard to see why so many people flock to these beautiful islands to get a bit of well deserved sun.
Although the Cape Verde islands are a relatively new holiday destination for Brits, there are two established islands to take a holiday. Sal and Boa Vista. Both islands are on the Eastern side of the archipelago, and warm dry winds from the Sahara keep these islands hot and dry, but pleasant thanks to the cooling breeze.
Cape Verde Holidays can be taken year round. The hottest months are between June and October, where the average temperature is around 26 degrees; they can reach into the mid 30's, but the dry heat and cooling breeze from the Sahara makes the summer months more than bearable.
Winter holidays in Cape Verde will provide that much needed escape from the relentless British weather. Temperatures are a little cooler this time of year, and February is best avoided as this is when the winds from the Sahara can be a little too breezy. November is an excellent time to visit as the temperatures are still hot, and a sun soaking before winter creeps in will stave off those winter blues.
