Islands offers something for everyone, says travel writer
Activity holidays in the Cape Verde islands are an undiscovered gem, according to a travel writer.
Marcia Moody, writing for the Daily Express' travel website tripideas.co.uk, revealed that the country offers something for visitors of all ages.
She said: "It's an undiscovered holiday gem. The diversity of the islands mean there's something for everyone, from unspoiled beaches, towering mountains and volcanic lunar landscapes to a thriving traditional music scene."
Ms Moody added that the volcanic island of Fogo is a must-see, as it is home to "stunning black-sand beaches" and beautiful pastel-coloured colonial houses.
Guests can even enjoy a meal in a restaurant located inside the crater of a volcano.
Holidaymakers may even be able to catch a gig during their stay, with acts such as Norah Jones and rapper Akon appearing on the island Praia during the past year.
Cape Verde is a former Portuguese colony comprised of ten major islands off the coast of west Africa in the Atlantic Ocean.
