- Cape Verde All inclusive holidays
Cape Verde is a popular destination for tourists from the UK, which sends almost twice as many visitors each year as the island group's other major markets, which include Portugal, Germany and the Benelux nations. A total of ten islands make up the group, which has volcanic origins like the Canaries and other land masses off the western coast of Africa. Cape Verde is about 350 miles from the continent's mainland, and its sandy beaches have developed into a successful island tourism market, making all-inclusive holidays to Cape Verde a luxurious and relaxing way to get some sun.
Cape Verde's European influences
The Cape Verde islands have European colonisation in common with the Canaries too, although in this case it was not Spain but Portugal that sent the first permanent inhabitants to the islands in the 15th century. As of 1975, the group gained its independence, and now European and African ethnicities mix in a population of about 500,000 residents across the 1,500 square miles of the islands. The tourist trade over the course of the year roughly equals this permanent population, but many of the main holiday resorts are found on the less inhabited of the islands.
What to do in Cape Verde
Year-round temperatures are in the low to mid 20°C Celsius, with an average high around 26°C, so although the weather should feel very warm compared to the UK, it's not usually too hot to try an activity or two. Many of these are based on the water, such as scuba diving or sailing, and this can help to cool the temperatures you feel. However, many people also trek into the interior of the islands and up into the mountains - where again, higher altitude can help to take the edge off of the heat.
