About this book

The Cape Verde islands are a destination with a difference, a distinctive blend of European and African cultures whose unique hospitality is encapsulated in the Creole word morabeza. These magical islands are soaring in popularity, with property construction, flights and international arrivals rocketing. British and Irish second-home investors are discovering the potential of these beautiful, burgeoning islands and this sixth edition of the Bradt Travel Guide: Cape Verde Islands provides practical details on purchasing property, exploring the spectacular landscape and travelling between islands.

From the long stretches of shimmering, sandy beaches of Boavista to the lush green peaks and valleys of Santo Antão, Cape Verde has something for everybody.

The only travel guide in English is the excellent and up-to-date Bradt Travel Guide. The Guardian "Best guidebook."
- The Sunday Times

"Reliable and well researched."
