Sal: Full-Day Guided Sightseeing Trip Around the Island

2. Sal: Full-Day Guided Sightseeing Trip Around the Island

Meeting at the front desk of your hotel at 9:15 AM, then make your way to the first destination, Ponta Preta (Black Edge). Witness a contrast between white natural sand dunes and dark-colored volcanic rocks entering the sea. This amazing combination creates huge and beautiful waves, making this location the stage for world-famous water sports competitions like surfing and windsurfing. While in Ponta Preta, you'll be introduced to the itinerary and provided with a brief history of Cape Verde. Next, head to Murdeira, located at the center of the island. Snorkel in the bay's crystal clear, coral-filled waters, and catch a glimpse of Monte Leão, one of the island's most prominent landmarks. From Murdeira, go north to the capital of the island, Espargos. Enjoy a local tour of the city ending in a panoramic view through the belvedere. Make your next stop at the fishing village of Palmeira, the only port on the island and an industrialized zone extremely important to the local economy. To the east of Palmeira, spot Buracona, a place with natural pools and an incredible rocky landscape of volcanic origin. This combination creates a wonderful phenomenon called "Blue Eye". From 10:30 AM–1 PM, the sun shines inside a 25-meter (82-foot) deep cave, allowing you to glimpse the image of a shiny blue eye staring at the majestic sky. More to the west of the island is Terra Boa, the only land for growing crops where you can enjoy another spectacle of nature, a mirage in the middle of the desert. On the way back to Espargos, pass the peripheral area of the island and visit some social institutions, such as kindergartens and schools. In Espargos, take a break for lunch in a local restaurant and taste a typical dish or savor one of the best pizzas in town. After lunch, continue to Pedra de Lume, where the famous Salinas (salt pans) are found inside of an extinct volcano crater. Bathe in the therapeutic waters before heading to the Baia de Parda around 4 PM to catch sight of lemon sharks. You'll return to your hotel around 5 PM.

What people are saying about Palmeira

Cool tour to visit the most popular sights of the island! Our guide responded to our wishes, told a lot about the island/culture/life here, was funny and interactive. Everything was also excellent in terms of organization: the evening before I received the confirmation/exact time and important information via WhatsApp and we were picked up at the hotel punctually at the agreed time. Admission to all attractions was also quick and uncomplicated (tickets were really all included in the price). Clear recommendation - thanks Nany!

My husband & I took this tour & it was amazing - would 100% recommend! Nany was our tour guide & he was fab - so friendly, knowledgable & couldn’t have been more helpful :) We visited all the main beauty spots on the island, Nany made sure we had as much time as we wanted to look around, take photos etc at each stop & as we weren’t able to swim in the pool at the Blue Eye, took us to another pool locals used instead which was amazing! If we return to Sal would definitely use you guys again, thanks for a great experience :)

To get to know the island of Sal well, I recommend booking the Tour. Punctuality, friendliness, good communication and excellent professionalism are evident throughout the visit. Thanks for the experience.
