Cape Verde

Floating in the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa, the islands of Cape Verde have been named the African Caribbean. Still fairly undiscovered by tourists, imagine year round sunshine, stunning white sand beaches, dramatic surf, tropical birds, enchanting sea life and a laid back, stress free atmosphere – it’s no wonder these fair isles are making a name for themselves. The islands were discovered by the Portuguese, and there's a real mix of African, Brazilian and Portuguese influences, creating a unique melting pot of cultures. You’ll see it in the island’s fashions, music and food.
