Cape Verde is made up of 10 major islands with its breathtaking beaches instantly grabbing your attention. Stunning white sands stretch as far as the eye can see, and it's along these amazing beaches that you will find a watersports playground.
The winter months from September produce some of the best surf. The Cape Verde Archipelago takes advantage of swells generated out in the atlantlic due to its geographical make up of bays and points producing waves of varying shape and size. Onshore conditions can be avoided simply by driving a few minutes to another area of the coastline offering offshore conditions.
This is an unspoilt location that is new to surf tourism with so many breaks waiting to be discovered. Over the next decade Cape Verde is set to be a much talked about surf destination but still offers uncrowded waves for all to enjoy.
