Of course, more days on the ocean will heighten our chances to see more of the dreamy anchor spots, the wildlife of the ocean, and so forth.

These islands include a combination of the best of Cape Verde with beautiful beaches; raw, volcanic mountains; friendly people; interesting wildlife; old, Portuguese cities; and the city of Monte Trigo, which is the furthest city West on the African continent and the closest, man will ever be to the edge of the world.

Q The weather on Cape Verde

A pleasantly tropical destination, the Cape Verde islands benefit from average annual temperatures of between 23°C and 30°C. Holidays to Cape Verde offer long, uninterrupted sunshine hours. It is possible to join for island hopping all year, but we recommend avoiding the windy months of December through March. Also, at that time larger waves occurs on some of the islands. If you want to relax in the sun and go for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean, you will not be disappointed. The surrounding waters tend to be very mild throughout the year with annual highs of 28°C in the summer and mild lows of 20°C in winter.
