Tropical Islandhopping Cape Verde- SPECIAL OFFER: SECOND PERSON FOR FREE! Discover this paradise with the Eendracht and start in Palmeira, Sal! Be surprised by the subtropical climate, cooling trade winds and the varied landscape of this colorful island group. Cape Verde is of volcanic origin and is located at the west coast of Africa. You can find some uninhabited islands, where nature can take its course. The Eendracht will sail through the archipelago including banana and coffee plantations, but where volcanic slopes and deserts determine the view. Meanwhile, the deep blue Atlantic Ocean is the perfect venue including flying fish, whales and sea turtles. During this trip everyone will participate in the working system of ‘4 hours on and 8 hours off’. In short, enjoy the Harmony of island hopping through the Cape Verde sailing paradise with its Portuguese hospitality and unspoiled nature. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Sal is one of the three sandy eastern islands of the Cape Verde archipelago, together with Boa Vista and Maio. The island is a dream destination for windsurfing enthusiasts, due to its sandy beaches and persistent winds. Tourism is on the rise in Cape Verde, but outside of the beach resort of Santa Maria the island retains its relaxed feel. Explore the quiet streets with their brightly colored houses, the blue eye cave, and the saline flats. The sun shines 350 days a year, so bring sunscreen!
