- Cape Verde Family holidays
Like the hugely popular Canary Islands, cheap family holidays in Cape Verde take you just off the west coast of the African continent. Here you'll find an archipelago of ten islands, 350 miles from Africa itself in the Atlantic Ocean. The group's pleasant weather conditions and pretty scenery have led to a thriving international tourism market, and taking your kids there for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks is a good way to give them a break from home, and some time to play together in the sunshine.
It's always good to travel to a destination where Britain is well represented, and cheap family holidays in Cape Verde certainly live up to this standard. The UK tourist market is almost twice the size of any other country, although Germany, Portugal and the three Benelux nations all send significant numbers of visitors each year too. But with Britain out in front, you can expect to find the Cape Verde hotels and resorts cater especially for English-speaking visitors, and this is great news if you are travelling all-inclusive and want your children to be able to order their own food and drink without a language barrier.
One of the best things about family holidays in Cape Verde is the weather. Not only in the sense that it is warm, but also in the fact that it is not too hot to be enjoyable for all the family, including young children. For instance, the average high temperature all year round is 26°C, and not in the 30s as is often seen in summer holiday destinations and on the Canary Islands to the south. It's not cold, by any means, but it should help the smallest of children to feel more comfortable, rather than having to deal with temperatures significantly higher than they have encountered before.
Holiday options in Cape Verde
There are plenty of options when choosing family holidays to Cape Verde. For the lowest upfront prices, choose self-catering accommodation, but remember you will have to pay for your food while you are there. Alternatively, opt for all-inclusive for all the family, and although you'll pay more for your tickets, you shouldn't face any extra costs during your holiday, leaving you free to enjoy your time with your kids.
Why Cape Verde is so great for families
Located just off the coast of the African continent, Cape Verde family holidays offer an intriguing cross between African and European influences. The established tourism industry here means that there are great facilities for family breaks but you also get that little something extra too. Get the kids to try new foods and experience different cultures, all in the safe environment of a popular holiday destination. Plus, with a perfect Goldilocks climate – not too hot, not too cold – you can do as much or as little as you like.
