Sal Island, Cape Verde: Stroll along the enormous, pristine beach with barely another soul on it. Amble through the cobbled, colourful streets of Santa Maria. Look out for the fishermen returning with their catch of the day - which may just end up on your plate for dinner. Float in the salt pool, Pedra Lume, in the crater of an extinct volcano. Watch the sun go down with a cocktail at the end of yet another glorious day.
