Similar to the islands of Sal and Maio,
the climate and countryside of Boa
Vista is also heavily marked by the dry,
hot winds blowing from the Sahara.
The countryside, dominated by sand
dunes, coconut plantations and date
palms, is desert-like in the interior,
whilst the white, sandy beaches that
stretch for mile after mile make Boa
vista one of the islands with the highest
tourist development potential.
Sal Rei is the capital of the island. The
life of the inhabitants is very simple and
evolves essentially around the harbor.
Once an island enjoying intensive fishing
activity, Boavista struggles like the
majority, compensated by the new salt-
New tourist class hotel units offer a high level of comfort,
providing visitors with excellent views of vast, sandy beaches.
