All Inclusive Holidays to Cape Verde

Cape Verde, a collection of 10 tiny islands off the coast of West Africa, nearly on the same time zone as the UK, hot weather year round, and only a six-hour flight. It is not hard to see why so many people flock to these beautiful islands to get a bit of well-deserved sun.

Although the Cape Verde islands are a relatively new holiday destination for Brits, there are two established islands to take a holiday. Sal and Boa Vista. Both islands are on the Eastern side of the archipelago, and warm dry winds from the Sahara keep these islands hot and dry, but pleasant thanks to the cooling breeze.

All Inclusive Holidays to Cape Verde

Cape Verde Holidays can be taken year round. The hottest months are between June and October, where the average temperature is around 26 degrees; they can reach into the mid 30’s, but the dry heat and a cooling breeze from the Sahara make the summer months more than bearable.

Accommodation on both Sal and Boa Vista are on an all-inclusive basis, with the exception of a few hotels which offer B&B and half board options.

Winter Holidays in Cape Verde

Winter holidays in Cape Verde will provide that much-needed escape from the relentless British weather. Temperatures are a little cooler this time of year, and February is best avoided as this is when the winds from the Sahara can be a little too breezy. November is an excellent time to visit as the temperatures are still hot, and a sun-soaking before winter creeps in will stave off those winter blues.

Cape Verde Resorts


Sal is the most developed island in terms of tourism and has a wider choice of hotels. Sal is a low lying desert island that enjoys year-round sunshine. All the hotels are located in Santa Maria, a small town on the Southern tip of the island.

Although Sal is little more than a desert island, it still has a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing. The east of the island is home to Pedre De Lume, a former salt mine in the crater of an extinct volcano. Visitors can see these salt flats and bathe in the therapeutic salt water.

Cape Verde Resorts

Espargo, the island capital, has its own magical vibe and is well worth a visit. Venture north of the capital and you can see Terra Boa mirage which appears as a lake in the desert landscape.

Cape Verde Resorts

Among the best attractions, however, is Sal’s coastline. Explore the largely unspoiled coastline and you will almost certainly find a secluded cove and beach all to yourself. The island beaches are white sand and turquoise seas. It is here you will find the all-inclusive resorts.

Cape Verde Resorts

Boa Vista is often referred to as a moon-like landscape created from volcanic fallout in the Viana Desert. Boa Vista is known for its white sandy beaches and the fact that there are very few hotels on the island means the beautiful beaches are far less crowded than sister island Sal.

Cape Verde Resorts

Boa Vista has its very own wildlife as well. Sea turtles come ashore regularly and you may even see some humpback whales on their migrating route.

Cape Verde Family Holidays

Cape Verde is a perfect setting for a family holiday. There are plenty of All-Inclusive resorts on the islands that cater for families with children. Many include their own children’s pools, menus, and children’s clubs. Many of the all-inclusive hotels on both Sal and Boa Vista are located directly on the beach, so you have access to swimming pools and the beach literally from your front door. Many hotels offer family rooms for up to two adults and two children, with some having adjoining rooms for larger families.

All Inclusive with Free Child Places.

TUI, like many other holiday companies, often have free child places at certain times of the year. General rules such as 1 free child to two paying adults apply, but these deals mean you can often save hundreds of pounds on a holiday. Free flights are included with Free Child Places, together with the hotel room, food and drink as well as airport transfers.

All Inclusive with Free Child Places are only available with selected holidays, so keep your eyes peeled for Cape Verde.

If there are no All Inclusive with Free Child Places to Cape Verde there are often last minute deals available which can cut hundreds off your holiday bill.

Adults Only All Inclusive Cape Verde

Sometimes it is nice just to relax around the pool or bar without having to worry about children. Don’t get me wrong, kids can be wonderful, but they can also be noisy.

Quite often more upmarket hotels have family and adult sections that are separate from each other. They have their own pools and restaurants, allowing both adults and families to enjoy their holidays without worrying about offending others.

There are a few Cape Verde all inclusive adults only hotels, both in Sal and Boa Vista. Most are family all-inclusive resorts with adult only sections, and there are some exclusively adults-only hotels.
