Drenched in year-round tropical sunshine, Cape Verde tourist attractions – ranging from kitesurfing to whale watching tours to quad biking adventures – are simply not to be missed and can be enjoyed at any time of year. And indeed, as awareness of these endless-summer paradise Islands grows on the world travel stage, tourism is booming, demand for luxury accommodation is high, and the country is fast-emerging as one of the most propitious overseas property investment hotspots the world has to offer.
Year-round Summer Climate
Down by the equator, just 300 miles off the west coast of Africa, temperatures never drop below 24°C on Cape Verde, and average between 25°C and 30°C right around the calendar. While this is great news for tourists, it’s also great news for the Cape Verde economy, and of course, the property investors who have chosen to make a buy-to-let purchase in the country.
With the sunshine almost perpetually blazing, there’s never really a low season on Cape Verde – holidaymakers flock to the Islands in their thousands all year round, and indeed their numbers are growing. In 2017, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) expects more than half a million international arrivals on Cape Verdean shores – a figure forecasted to rise to 728,000 by 2027. These people want luxury accommodation during their stay, which is precisely why smart, modern investors are getting increasingly excited about the long-term prospects of investing in property in Cape Verde.
Cape Verde Tourist Attractions Keep Demand for Luxury Accommodation High
A good, overseas buy-to-let property investment is one that is made in a country that enjoys high tourist numbers. High levels of tourism ensure high demand for accommodation, which means that the likelihood of a buy-to-let property being occupied around the calendar is also high. With so much to see and do on the Islands, it’s easy to see why Cape Verde will continue to enjoy an even greater tourism boom long into the future.
Cape Verde, indeed, is fast-becoming recognised around the world as an ideal holiday hotspot. Recent articles in both The Mirror (‘Best Things to Do in Cape Verde’) and The Telegraph (‘10 Reasons Why Cape Verde Is the Most Underrated Winter Sun Destination on Earth’) pay homage and testimony to the country’s captivating attractions that are drawing increasing numbers of holidaymakers from all over the planet to these fascinating shores.
Kite Surfing and Windsurfing
As described in The Mirror, “This is one of the country’s unique selling points. Due to their mid-Atlantic positioning, the Islands are breezy and also boast wide sandy beaches – ideal for the adrenaline-rich sport of kite surfing, where the wind takes your kite-sail and drags you over the waves on a specially-made board.”
Windsurfing adventures are also on offer on Cape Verde, and the country indeed is known as one of the very best locations in the world for the sport. With kitesurfing and windsurfing schools offering everything you need to ride the waves, this is one Cape Verde tourist attraction that keeps the thrill-seekers coming, and then coming back for more.
For those that prefer to navigate the ocean waves from the safety of a strong boat, there are a number of fishing trips available on Cape Verde for unforgettable days chasing a big catch in the salty sea air. From big game fishing for blue marlin and tuna to trolling, vertical jigging and deep sea fishing, Cape Verde offers a host of angling adventures all year round for all experience levels.
Shark Spotting, Whale Watching and Turtle Watching
The waters surrounding the Islands offer no end of Cape Verde tourist attractions that simply can’t be missed. At the top of the list for many are the unrivalled opportunities for getting up close to some truly exotic tropical sea life.
At Shark Bay on Sal Island, lemon sharks swarm the shallow waters, where, believe it or not, it is perfectly safe to join them. Despite growing to staggering eight feet in length, these beautiful creatures are only interested in eating fish and pose no threat to humans. Still, with their razor-sharp teeth and menacing black fins gliding through the water, sharing the waves with these great predators is an exhilarating experience.
Over on Boa Vista, one of the world’s most important nesting sites of the magnificent loggerhead turtle is found, while humpback whales have made themselves a breeding ground just a short distance offshore. Both whale watching and turtle watching tours are very popular Cape Verde attractions for tourists.
