Sal – a beach paradise

Sal is one of the islands in the archipelago of Cape Verde. I had never heard about this place until I went there in early 2012. We stayed at Hotel Belorizonte in Santa Maria, just by the incredible 8 km long beach.

We spent most of the days walking along the empty beach. It truly felt like paradise, having this white, powdery beach and deep blue and turquoise ocean, all to ourselves.

Sal was quite empty of both people and places to go. There weren’t many restaurants or shops at all.. Guessing that is increasing with the tourist boost.

    Hi, a common misconception is that Cape Verde is only desert and beach. The desert islands of Sal and Boavista are the most touristy islands of Cape Verde and truly corresponds to that idea. They are basically sand and sea.
    However if one wants to see tropical green landscapes, mountains and even an active volcano, one has to travel to the other islands of Cape Verde. Cape Verde can be very diverse if one visits the islands of Santiago, Fogo, Brava, Santo Antao, etc

    Happy travels
