The island of Sal, ‘The Salt Island’ is an excellent starting point from where you can island hop to discover tropical plantations, go walking around the old town in Santiago, take in breath taking mountain views of Monte Verde in Sao Vincente or simply soak up the sun and surf.

From a business perspective there are many reasons why you should consider investing in the initial phase of growth; exchange rate of the local currency is fixed to the Euro, a new International Airport on the island of Santiago is now receiving direct flights from the USA and analysts predict a 70% increase in property value over the next 24 months.

During 2006 Cape Verde National carrier TACV will be introducing direct short haul flights from the UK, approximately 5.5 hours flying time. Low cost operators are expected to follow shortly afterwards, increasing the accessibility to the islands, thus, increasing the rental potential of your property.

The Cape Verde Islands are the nearest tropical islands to the UK; they are awaiting you to discover them!

Area and History
The uninhabited islands were discovered and colonised by the Portuguese in the 15th century; Cape Verde subsequently became a trading centre for African slaves and later an important coaling and re-supply top for whaling and transatlantic shipping.

Following independence in 1975, a one-party system was established and maintained until multi-party elections were held in 1990. Cape Verde continues to exhibit one of Africa´s most stable democratic governments.


Cape Verde is four hours closer to mainland UK than the Caribbean, with the ideal climate without the hurricanes. Cape Verde enjoys a temperate climate, warm dry summers, with little and irregular rainfall.
