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.
