White sands and year-round sun, just six jetlag-free hours from the UK. It’s hardly surprising more and more Brits are jetting off on Cape Verde holidays.

Located 570 kilometres (350 miles) west of the African mainland, exotic, yet Europeanised Cape Verde’s low prices, warm weather and gobsmacking scenery – from jungle-covered volcanoes to scorched scrub and pearl-white beaches – are guaranteed to seduce.

Most Cape Verde holidays are based on the desert island of Sal, where miles of idyllic virgin coastline fringe the barren interior. Seaside village Santa Maria is the main draw, especially for those booking all-inclusive Cape Verde breaks.

Santa Maria beach, Sal

Sal’s rival for all-inclusive Cape Verde trips is Boa Vista, to the south. Here, the same powdery dunes, turquoise seas and pancake-flat terrain come with fewer sun-loungers and jewellery hawkers. But Sal is hands-down the best island in Cape Verde for diving. There are no reefs, but the lava caves, wrecks, tropical critters and whale sharks more than make up for it.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
