Why go to Sal

Adrift in the Atlantic, some 500km off the coast of Senegal, Sal is home to splendid beaches, year-round warm weather and a laid-back “no stress” attitude.

Relatively unknown to the package holiday mass market, Sal holidays offer a taste of the exotic without the jet lag – in under six hours, you can be flopped on the type of beach that wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean.

Part of Cape Verde, Sal is the most popular and developed of a ten-island archipelago. Mostly, travellers head here for one of two things: its seemingly endless, sugar-white sandy beaches, or its world-class kite surfing conditions.
