Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation in Praia and depart toward Nelson Mandela airport. There, take a 40-minute flight to Sal and enjoy an amazing view of the island from the air. Once in Sal, begin your tour and get to know the history of an island transformed from the exploration of salt to the biggest tourist destination in Cape Verde. Explore the white sand and warm water of Kite Beach, where the world kite-surfing championships are often held. From there, continue to the natural bay of Murdeira and admire the beautiful views of the Lion Mountain. Then, move on to the fishing village of Palmeira. There, meet locals and have a chance to see the arrival of crafts, as well as all the activity of selling fresh fish. Next, travel to Burracona, see "Blue Eye" (one of the 7 wonders of the country), and marvel at its beautiful and natural swimming pool. After that, explore Espargos, the economic center of the island. Your tour progresses to Pedra de Lume Salt Crater, an old salt farm. The water in the lagoons from which the salt is extracted is very hot and 27 times saltier than sea water. Bring your book and enjoy reading while floating in the world’s second-saltiest water, an unforgettable experience. Take a break for lunch and continue toward Miragem, where you will see the effects of water illusions in the desert. Finally, experience Shark Bay and watch lemon sharks in their natural environment very closely. Finally, take a return flight to Santiago Island.
