Endless dunes, dreamy beaches, natural caves... Discover the many charms of Boa Vista Island on this tour to Santa Monica beach, Viana desert, and the Varandinha caves.
Boa Vista Island Tour
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Sal Rei at 9 am and travel to the Cabo de Santa Maria shipwreck, the first stop of the day.
Once we get there, we'll learn about the history of this old ship that has been stranded at the Cape of Santa Maria for over 50 years. In fact, it's been a source of inspiration for many painters and photographers over the years.
We'll continue our tour to the desert of Viana, one of the most fascinating places on the island of Boa Vista. We'll walk through its infinite dunes formed by the sand of the Sahara desert due to the strong winds. Once we've snapped plenty of pictures, we'll approach the village of Povoação Velha, a perfect place to discover how the locals go about their day-to-day life. Did you know that this is one of the oldest settlements on the island?
Our next stop will be at the beach of Santa Monica, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Verde. You'll see for yourself since we'll have an hour of free time to relax on its white sandy beach and bask in the sun.
Afterward, we'll travel to Varandinha beach, where we'll visit its famous natural grotto and discover the figures carved in limestone caves, formed as a result of the erosion of the sea.
Finally, we'll make our way back to Sal Rei through the Morro D'Areia Natural Park, from where you'll enjoy some amazing views of Boa Vista. We'll end the tour at your hotel around 4 pm.
