Resort Summary

Named for the salt mines carved into its landscape, the island of Sal – which means ‘salt’ in Portuguese – is one of the most sought-out islands of Cape Verde’s 10-part family. Its trademark look is characterised by beaches that look like they’re straight out of the Sahara Desert, its volcanic landscape and colourful buildings speckling city streets.

The beaches aren’t the only thing to marvel at – Sal is full of natural wonders, from spooky mirages to salt-soaked pools. Strong winds make it a haven for watersport junkies while soft sands bring in a fleet of loggerhead turtles every year. Couples looking for quiet beach days and those with other interests won’t have trouble enjoying it either.
