A chance to delve into some of the Boa Vista's top spots. Spend a morning roaming the Viana desert in a 4x4 and exploring inland towns before ending up on one of the island's most beautiful beaches. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
This morning-long adventure kicks off with a visit to the 19th-century church in Rabil – Boa Vista's second largest town. Then it's off to a ceramic factory to see how local pottery is crafted, and where you might want to pick up a souvenir. You'll also get to taste cachupa, Cape Verde's national dish.
Next, you'll zoom through the dusty landscape of the Viana desert. In Povoação Velha, you can wander its rustic streets before setting off for the 18km-long Santa Monica beach, where sugar-white sands contrast against turquoise waters.
