Why go to Boa Vista

Boa Vista is a serene and unspoilt island where baby turtles hatch in brilliant white sands before sloping off into the azure waters. Book holidays to Boa Vista to stake your own place amid the sand dunes and gentle waves and enjoy a truly relaxed break in this up-and-coming destination.

This Caribbean-like dream destination is one of the Cape Verde islands islands and is reached in around six hours on flights from the UK...

Sitting amid the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa, Cape Verde continues to see its star rise on the holiday chart. With sun-baked beaches, warm winters, modern accommodation and a melting pot of culture, cuisine and music, this island chain has a lot to offer to travellers looking for a beach break minus high-rise hotels and British bars.

If you've spent time amid the natural landscapes of Spain's Canary Islands, you can picture what Cape Verde might be like. All of the islands were born from fiery volcanoes and, while some are lush and mountainous, others are fairly flat and punctuated by sand dunes and palm trees. Holidays in Boa Vista are spent within a landscape that rises to a few minor peaks in the centre, but is generally flush with the ocean and encircled by great swathes of perfect sands. Meaning “good view” in Portuguese, Boa Vista certainly delivers when it comes to stunning scenes. It's also known as a great place to view sea turtles. These amazing creatures find their way onto Boa Vista's beaches (and who can blame them?) every summer to lay their eggs in the sand. The east-coast beach of Ervatao is one of the best spots to see the turtles.

While the neighbouring island of Sal continues to grow as a holiday destination, Boa Vista remains a relatively unchanged island, where a select number of luxury low-rise resorts will take your fancy. All-inclusive holidays to Boa Vista are very popular in these sumptuous and comfortable hotels. The very best offer swimming pools, spas, excellent restaurants and bars and bundles of facilities for children and adults.

To find a fantastic deal on your break in Boa Vista, compare prices using TravelSupermarket and select the deal that suits you.

*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.
