Amazing beach! Really pristine as there are no hotels as yet- we were told Hilton will built a resort in the next 5-10years so that would spoilt the beauty. 16kms of nothing but beach, very peaceful. Highly recommend a day there cos it will blow...More

One of the best beaches in the world. Powdery white sand, A gentle breeze, picturesque waves breaking just off the beach. The only thing which tarnished it was the knowledge that the Hilton were putting up a 5000 room hotel right in the sea front....More

This beach is one of the best beaches I have ever seen, pure white sand, aquamarine sea and you can be alone if you walk far enough. One of the best beaches on Boa Vista. Travel there by Quad bike, you wont be disappointed!

Best beach I have ever visited! Pure white sands and crystal blue sea to rival any Caribbean destination. Go now as soon it will be overrun by big hotels.

Breath taking place, we visited in on quads which probably added a bit extra to it. Lovely views which you don’t have in any other place.

The temperature doesn't vary much from month to month although January is the coldest month at about 23 degrees. In July it can be 28 degrees. Cape Verde is always windy so in January it feels a bit colder than 23. The... More
