Cape Verde consists of ten main islands so you can choose the island for your type of holiday - or visit them all. Kite and windsurfers will love Boa Vista which has an almost constant offshore wind stream. Hikers will naturally head for Santa Antao's Cova Crater, Sao Nicolau's rugged hiking trails on Mount Gordo and the volcanic island of Fogo. Those wanting to imbibe themselves with the country's history will visit Santa Luzia for its splendid basilica and Baroque church and the historical town of Cidade Vekha on Santiago Island. For those seeking peace and sandy beaches, head for Maio and Brava Islands. All the islands have markets and lively nightlife but the best place for live music is Mundelo on Sao Vincent Island.
