There are many places available for hiking in the cape that can take anywhere between 2 to 7 hours to climb depending on the destination.

The underwater life in Cape Verde is greatly known for its marine life and here you get to be a part of the stunning eco system that exists. Notice colourful fish and reefs as you swim across, you may also be able to spot below larger species such as dolphins and whales throughout the year. Turtles and harmless sharks rest in caves. It is suitable for both professional and beginner divers and since there is not really a rainy season here, and the warm sea temperatures it’s almost always a good time to have a dive here.
Among all of the water sports you can find at Cape Verde, kitesurfing is one of the most entertaining and exciting one. You can be able to find this during November to March as winds during these periods are high and optimum for wind surfing. This is available to both beginners and professionals as they are facilities that help tutor you before you are ready to go on.
