The island of Sal, in the Cape Verde islands which is located just off the coast of north-west Africa, is one of the most reliable kitesurf holiday destinations for the UK winter season (November to April) and is only a quick five hour flight.

The accommodation on Sal is of a moderate standard. However, there is a superb 4 star hotel called the Morabeza Hotel, with its perfect beach front location and the kitesurf school just next door makes it the ideal place to stay. 

The kitesurfing on Sal caters to all skill levels, whether you are a beginner or an established wave rider. However, the conditions in Sal are best suited to intermediate and advanced kiters.

The Island of Boa Vista, Portuguese for Good View, has the most stunningly beautiful beaches on the Cape Verde archipelago, covering a staggering 55km. Most of the accommodations are generously spread out along the West Coast of the island reaching out from the town of Sal Rae over a 10km stretch. 

Planet kitesurf only works with the best hotels on Boa Vista from small locally run charming apartments to large beach front all inclusive resorts. Our recommendation, unless you have specific requirements for 4* all inclusive hotels, is to stay in one of the smaller hotels which are a short stroll into town and also to the kitesurf centre.

The water conditions here offer the only flat water spot on the island due to the cross off-shore wind direction as well as easy access to waves if you need. 

It is very important when booking a holiday to Boa Vista to get the right location for your level to avoid a bad experience. Planet have are experts in travel to the Cape Verde Islands so we will do our best to make sure our clients get the best hotel for the budget and kitesurf needs.
