Bradt's first edition of Cape Verde Islands found an enthusiastic audience of travelers needing fresh and comprehensive information, which this new edition thoroughly updates. South of the popular Canary Islands, the Cape Verdes are a more tranquil island group with a distinctive but welcoming culture waiting to be explored. Visitors are guided to deserted sandy beaches, tiny villages nestling in the volcanic mountains, and shipwrecks off the spectacular coastline, part of the heritage of this remote Portuguese outpost's pirate past. An increasingly popular location for windsurfing and diving, the islands also offer hiking, cycling, and fishing -- all fully covered in Bradt's guide to ensure plenty of options for the energetic traveler as well as the sun-worshipper. Highlights for each of the islands in the group, traveling between the islands, marine wildlife, and an introduction to Cape Verde Island culture through literature, music, and history are just some of the topics covered in this first dedicated guide to these islands.
