Cape Verde's most popular island, cosmopolitan Sal is all about beautiful beaches, exhilarating water sports and relaxing bays. The island is dotted with colourful, cobbled towns, and there's none better than the bay of Santa Maria where you'll find surf shops, traditional restaurants and a pretty square lined with al fresco cafés. The main attraction is the beach, which stretches eight kilometres along the coast and with most hotels in Santa Maria being just a stone's throw away from the beach, you can spend all day gazing out to sea whilst sipping on a cooling Cape Verdean caiprinha. Small enough to explore on foot, Espargos is a gorgeous and quiet town with a main square, shops, restaurants and a choice of accommodation ideal for an overnight stop. Book your flight to Sal, Cape Verde with Thomas Cook and discover a new destination, brimming with culture, natural beauty, exciting cuisine and the best beaches this side of the Atlantic – all under a hot African sun.
