Cape Verde's International Airport, Amílcar Cabral, is
located on the island of Sal, with direct flights from numerous major European
cities such as Paris, Lisbon, Amsterdam and Las Palmas, travelling to this
'corner of paradise' is becoming increasingly easier and convenient. Direct
cross-Atlantic flights are also available from Boston, New York, Houston and
Atlanta and the highly anticipated new international airport in Praia, the
country's capital on Santiago Island, is expected to vastly increase Cape Verde's
potential as a top holiday destination. The three principle international
air-carriers flying to and from the Islands are TACV (Transportes Aéreos de Cabo
Verde), TAP Air Portugal and South African Airways. Internal Flights: Once on
from one island to another is best done through internal flights. The country's
national airline, TACV, offers daily flights to all of the inhabited islands
apart from Brava and Santo Antao, which are only accessible by boat. Passengers
also travelling internationally with TACV will qualify for an 'internal
air-pass' entitling them to reduced fares on pre-booked internal
flights. The Cape Verde
Islands For those travelling in groups between islands, private air
charters are available through ' Cape Verde Express' air taxi service. Although
usually a more expensive option, the in-transit views are
unbeatable. Sea: The
islands of Mindelo, Sao Vicente, Santo Antao, Santiago, Fogo and Brava are all
linked through two well-established cargo-passenger ferry services. These
services are frequent and reliable, but most travellers still favour the
quicker, hassle-free option of internal flights, leaving the ferries to play a
more major role in industry rather than tourism. Road: When travelling by road, there are several
different options available. Firstly, for those wishing to truly explore, car
hire is readily available on the islands of Santiago, Fogo, Sao Vicente and Sal.
But be aware - only one-third or the country's roads are paved, so driving in
remote areas can be somewhat of an 'adventure'! Vehicles drive on the right-hand
side of the road and an International Driving Licence is required. The
second option is to travel by taxi, known as 'Aluguer'. This is probably the
most popular way of getting around and these vehicles vary in size and shape -
from cars to pick-ups, vans to minibuses. It is common practice to negotiate the
price of a journey before setting off. Finally, public buses are a
reliable, inexpensive way of getting around. The cleanliness of the buses is of
a surprisingly high standard, particularly in larger towns.
