Boa Vista is the second touristic island of Cape Verde, with many direct flights from airports in the UK and Europe.
Like Sal, it's also popular for its untouched white sandy beaches, sand dunes and relaxing vibe.
Whales and dolphins are often spotted during December to April, and turtles nest here during the summer months.
The island also hosts good windsurf and kitesurf conditions, as well as diving and game fishing.
There are some lively nightlife venues including the Morabeza beach bar in Sal Rei that plays live reggae music with cocktails and a bonfire in the sand.
