About the Cape Verde Islands
The tropical archipelago has a wonderful climate with an average, moderate temperature of 26°C – making it an ideal destination for a sunny holiday at any time of year. White sandy beaches, bright blue waves and zero stress: you’ll feel completely relaxed in no time.
What makes Sal so unique?
Sal has an overall surface area of 216km² and a population of 35,000. Serena Bay is situated in idyllic Santa Maria. Endless beaches and the perfect climate are your guarantee for the ultimate holiday experience.
Social, political and economic development
Most tourists tend to head to the popular islands of Sal and Boa Vista. The locals, many of whom partly rely on the growing tourist industry for their income, are friendly and hospitable. Cape Verdean politics are stable and you won’t have to worry about the exchange rate between the escudo (the local currency) and the euro.
What are the top things to do nearby?
The vibrant town of Santa Maria has an idyllic promenade and an 8-kilometre strip of pearly white sandy beaches, surrounded by clear, turquoise water. Sal is also known as a luxury resort for water sports enthusiasts: surfing, diving, kitesurfing, sailing, and much more. If you thought floating was only possible in the Dead Sea, think again: the salt lake of Pedra De Lume is more than worth a visit. Or why not head for Shark Bay to spot lemon sharks? And don’t miss out on The Blue Eye, a magical underwater cave where mother nature’s beauty shimmers…
