Region Summary

Introduction to Boa Vista

Boa Vista is a beach island. In fact it has Cape Verde’s longest beach at 18 kilometres. Projects started in Boa Vista by major tour operators point to the success of this island as a major tourist destination. A new international airport should be completed in 2006, (construction is already well under way) initially to fly tourists into 2 large Italian resorts, but in time this will expand to other regions of the world. Long deserted white sandy beaches are what Boa Vista is all about.

Boa vista is superb for watersports. Diving, fishing and wind and kite surfing. Or simply stroll down one of the beautiful white sandy beaches, often deserted, and you can completely relax and get away from the rigours of everyday life. Sa Rei is the capital. It has a pretty central square , with small restaurants, shops and bars, and serves some of the best lobster in the world. The town has 3 beaches, Cabral beach where houses and apartments are springing up, Estoril beach to the south with a lovely beach bar and windsurfing centre, and the towns small beach Praia Diante, next to the small harbour.

To the south of the island is the wonderful Santa Monica Beach, with miles of white sand, and to the west of the island is the lovely Chaves beach, with the new luxury Italian hotel development and a few other smaller hotels.
