Cheap first class tickets to Cabo Verde: Praia and other

Cape Verde or Cabo Verde, officially the Republic of Cabo Verde, is an island country spanning an archipelago of 10 volcanic islands in the central Atlantic Ocean. It forms part of the Macaronesia ecoregion, along with the Azores, Canary Islands, Madeira, and the Savage Isles. Located 570 kilometres west of the Cape Verde Peninsula off the coast of Northwest Africa, the islands cover a combined area of slightly over 4,000 square kilometres.

The Cape Verde archipelago was uninhabited until the 15th century, when Portuguese explorers discovered and colonized the islands, establishing the first European settlement in the tropics. Ideally located for the Atlantic slave trade, the islands grew prosperous throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, attracting merchants, privateers, and pirates.

What should I know before going to Cape Verde?

The Republic of Cape Verde is an archipelago made up of 10 volcanic islands off the west coast of Africa. It includes, to the south, the islands of Sotavento and, to the north, the islands of Barlavento. While Portuguese explorers set foot there in 1456, these islands are completely pristine and quickly become a haunt of pirates. Today they are islands prized for the richness of their fauna and flora as well as the beauty of their beaches. The capital, Praia, is located on the large island of Santiago. Following the great explorers, Portuguese remained the official language.

What to do in Cape Verde?

Cape Verde is renowned for its landscapes and volcanoes but also for its Afro-Portuguese Creole culture and its Morna music. It is on the largest island, Santiago, that you will find the capital Praia and many things to do:

  • Pico do Fogo : peaking at 2,829 meters above sea level, the volcano is the roof of Cape Verde. You can hike to its crater at the top.
  • Monte Verde : Monte Verde is the highest point on the island of Sao Vicente, the most populated island in the archipelago. It is also one of the protected areas of the island.
  • Raso islet : this small islet of 7km2 is uninhabited. It is classified for its unique fauna, especially its birds.
  • Tarrafal camp : it is a penitentiary located in the north of the island of Santiago. It is a whole of the repression of the regime of Salazar which sent its political opponents there from the start of the Spanish war.
  • The Presidential Palace of Praia : Those curious about history can also take a look at the former residence of the governor of the colony and its superb gardens.

We warmly recommend that you hire a car in Cape Verde, which will allow you to get out of the coastal resorts at your leisure and sink into the much quieter inland areas.
