Things to do in Sal


    Sal is now known as one of the best kitesurf hotspots in the world. The best beach is even called Kite Beach, east of Santa Maria. Sal is perfect for all water-based sports due to the constant trade wind blowing on the Cape Verde islands. The Kitesurf season is between November and April. The wind is the strongest in February and March.

Visit Buracona – The Blue Eye

    On the north-west side of Sal, you have another popular tourist attraction: Buracona. It’s a bay 5 km north of Palmeira which you can reach by an unpaved road along the coastline. At Buracona there are two reasons you want to pay a visit. Swim in the natural pool and see the Blue Eye. At exactly noon (or around noon. Depends on the month) the sun shines directly into an underwater cave and turns it into what looks like a blue eye.
