The Cape Verde Isles

Mindelo

Cape Verde or Cabo Verde, officially the Republic of Cabo Verde, is an island country spanning an archipelago of 25 islands, 9 of which are uninhabited. Every island has a character all of its own that begs to be explored. 10 of the islands are volcanic providing spectacular landscapes.

The Cape Verde Islands are situated just north of the equator and 400 miles west of Dakar on the African coast. A tropical yet dry climate, volcanic landscapes and an intriguing colonial heritage makes the Cape Verde Islands a fascinating area to explore.

A pleasantly tropical destination, the Cape Verde islands benefit from average annual temperatures of between 24°C and 30°C. In December the average temperature is 27°C. Cape Verde offers long, uninterrupted sunshine hours and low humidity making it a very comfortable warm destination.
