This is the island that receives the most visitors in the Cape Verde archipelago in West Africa. The motto of the island is “No Stress”, and the reality is exactly that. The endless and largely unspoilt sandy beaches are the ideal place to relax and forget your routine.
Salinas de Pedra Lume is home of the only salt flats in the world in the crater of a volcano, and they say that its waters take 10 years off the age of your skin. Can you imagine? The high concentration of salt allows you to float just like in the Dead Sea. An experience you must not miss on Isla de Sal. The list of water sports you can do is really long. We recommend diving in the Buracona area in natural pools where you can also see an attraction known as the Blue Eye. When the light hits the pool from the right angle, the colour turns into a magic turquoise blue, making it look like a "blue eye". Just as impressive is the sight of the sharks in Shark Bay.
