Why Cape Verde is the perfect Winter Sun destination

Are you waiting to book your winter sun break? Hesitate no longer – there’s a reason why Cape Verde tops the charts when it comes to escaping the cold.

1. Year-round sun

Rarely descending below 24C, the Cape Verdean sun is a reliable entity when you’re deciding on your winter holiday. Often settling somewhere amongst 25C and 30C in the high-season months between September and January, it is truly a heat seekers paradise.

 2. Easy to book deals 

Package deals come with luxury guaranteed with a stay in one of the 5-star Resorts that live on Algodoeiro Beach. From the elegance of the MELIÃ Tortuga Beach Resort or the family-friendly fun at the MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa to the adults-only experience at the TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde or MELIÃ Llana Beach Resort & Spa, there’s something for everyone.

3. Culture

Despite being a few short hours away, you can find yourself in a completely different culture here on the Cape Verde Islands. The colourful houses and creole language come from the distinctive mix of Portuguese and African influences on the Islands, it’s a unique experience that you won’t find anywhere else. 

4. Music

It’s the sort that makes you feel like it’s summer, whatever time of year it is. An especially helpful form of escapism if you’re avoiding the cold British winter. Morna is a uniquely Cape Verdean musical style, made famous by Cesaria Evora, and one that still drifts from the doorways of Santa Maria’s streets today.

5. Watersports

A truly exhilarating hotspot for anyone who fancies their chances on the famous waves, Cape Verde has a world-renowned reputation for watersports. Try your hand at kite- or wind-surfing at Kite Beach or hire out a jet ski for a bit of fun at Bikini Beach Watersports.

6. Short flight time

Though it may seem far, Cape Verde is a mere five hours from some UK airports and seldom goes over six hours from further destinations. It’s a manageable flight time with no jet lag, which makes it perfect for families and those who prefer to avoid long-haul journeys.
