Island hopping by yacht is one of the best ways to see the Cape Verde islands and experience the swell of the Atlantic Ocean. You can sail from Sao Vicente to Santa Antao or Santa Luzia or Sal then dive off a yacht into crystal blue waters, throw a line off the back and catch your supper, or moor up for the evening and taste a new town's food and nightlife each night. If variety is what you are after, with a spirit of adventure, then sailing is definitely the way to go!
www.sailcapeverde.com - based in Mindelo their sleek and comfortable sailing yacht Perseverance will take you wherever you want to go.
Mindelo has a thriving music scene and this is embodied in the vibrant and colourful carnivals that take place throughout the year. The fantastic Brazilian-style Mardi Gras carnival in February sees people from all over the world descend on Mindelo for three to four days of music, costumes, samba dancing, and partying throughout the nights. Like Rio, but smaller and closer to home with a real taste of the exotic side of the islands.
Yearly, on the feast of Mardi Gras (usually around February). The warm ups begin a couple of days before, with the Samba procession the night before Mardi Gras, and the actual Carnaval on the day of Mardi Gras.
