What to expect

This morning on two wheels and two feet is a great way to explore southern Sal. Your adventure takes a scenic route from the salt flats of Santa Maria to Kite Beach and on to Serra Negra. Not only will you get to see some of the island's best bits but you'll also get to stretch those legs.

The fun kicks off at Santa Maria salt flats after you've received your bike and helmet. You'll pedal your way to the famous Mitu & Djo beach club at Kite Beach. Run by champion kitesurfers, this sweep of sand gets its name from the crowds of kitesurfers who flock here. You won't be catching any air yourself but you'll have a few minutes to catch your breath and watch the pros riding the waves before continuing on to Serra Negra.

It should take about an hour on two wheels before you read Sal's highest point – at just over 100 metres. From here on in, two feet are better than two wheels, and the final leg to the summit is by foot. The views from the top will have been worth the effort.

Lobster Experience

Lobster Experience

As the name suggests, lobster is the word at LobStar – though wow runs it a close second. You'll be saying it when you set eyes upon it, when you see the views from the terrace and when you are served your Cape Verdean speciality lobster meal – you can choose either lunch or dinner. The restaurant is in a beautiful, rustic stone hut at the foot of the pier where fishermen daily land their catch. LobStar's chefs source their seafood from here – so it's a case of straight off the boat and on to your plate. Wine and live music are included. Meat and vegetarian menus are also available.

Sal Lemon Shark Experience

Living in the coastal subtropical waters around Sal, lemon sharks are one of the easiest sharks to spot in their natural habitat. After pick-up from your hotel, you'll drive to Shark Bay where your experience will begin. Wade out into the water with a marine biologist and you'll be taught all about this incredible species. Spot their yellow-tinted skin – ideal for camouflage in the sandy shores – and watch them as they go about their business, twisting and turning, and looking for fish just a few feet away. You'll see their fins cutting through the surface of the water and get to know these sharks closer than you could imagine.
