Sal

It doesn't matter if you're in a city or a town off the beaten track, traveling is what you make of it. So, it's worth doing a little research on Sal in order to get the most out of your time here.

Sal Vacation Packages

It is approximately 130 miles from Praia, the nation's capital.

Are you a beach enthusiast? This area has several beautiful locations along the coastline. Spend some time at Praia de Santa Monica, 50 miles to the south, and Praia da Chave, 40 miles to the south.

This place has an interesting past. You'll be able to learn all about it at Santa Maria Town Square.

Don't miss out on Pedra do Lume. Also think about Palmeira.

Beirona and Murdeira are two other places worth checking out while you're in the area. They're 2 miles and 2 miles away, respectively.

Approximately 40 miles to the south of Sal is Boa Ventura, a regional hub where you'll discover Fundo das Figueiras, Cabeço das Tarafes and Rabil. João Galego and Curral Velho are additional sites if you have extra time.

If you enjoy it when you head outdoors and try something new, there are some energizing activities here. Release your inner adventurer and try mountain climbing and hiking.

If you're the type of person who prefers to take the slow lane while on a vacation, why not try a bit of shore fishing and sunbathing?

Make your way to the water and beat the heat with some swimming or snorkeling, two of the more entertaining ways to get all wet here.

Head outdoors and discover the region with a trip to its interesting open-air markets.

What's a vacation without indulging in tasty cuisines? Cape Verde is a superb place to stimulate your senses!

Ensure that you ask where to find the more recognizable regional ingredients, such as cabbage and tuna.

Catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables) are two much-loved dishes for you to try.

For dessert, you have to sample some divine papauya candy (sweet).

Those who love a stiff drink every now and then should definitely order some Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses), a well-known spirit.

True travel encompasses so much more than simply being an observer. It's also about involving yourself in the stories and conversations of a country. Your adventures will be more rewarding if you take the time to memorize some day-to-day words, sayings and salutations in Portuguese. Feliz aniversário! is Portuguese for happy birthday. Thank you is another good one to be familiar with, so try pronouncing Muito agradecidos.

You should be happy to learn that the 5th of July is Independence Day, a lively day of national celebration.

After you have spent the last of your escudos and it's time to head back home, remember to say a last "Adeus" to Sal.

If you plan on leaving by air, keep in mind that the closest airport is roughly 2 miles to the northwest.
