About Cape verde
Cape Verde, or Cabo Verde as it is officially called, is an archipelago nation located off the west coast of Africa, comprising ten volcanic islands. The islands are grouped into two major ones: the Barlavento (windward) islands, which include Santo Antão, São Vicente, Santa Luzia, São Nicolau, Sal, and Boa Vista; and the Sotavento (leeward) islands that comprise Maio, Santiago, Fogo, and Brava. Each island possesses a unique character and a blend of African, Portuguese and Brazilian influences that reflects in its culture, music, and cuisine. The nation is known for its captivating landscapes, ranging from spectacular beaches to mountainous regions, offering scenic hiking trails. It is especially renowned for its music styles such as Morna, Funana, and Coladeira, with the late Cesária Évora being one of its most famous singers. The islands of Cape Verde offer a diverse range of experiences from exploring the vibrant capital city of Praia on Santiago Island, relaxing on the white sandy beaches of Sal and Boa Vista, to hiking the active volcano on Fogo Island. The hospitality of the Cape Verdean people is as warm as the islands' tropical climate, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking an exotic blend of cultures and experiences.
