Cape Verde: The European Caribbean

Cape Verde
According to legend when God was satisfied with creation he brushed his hands together,and the crumbs that fell from his fingers into the sea formed the Cabo Verde Islands.

“Walking through these islands is like making a blind man see..Charles Darwin”

The captivating Islands of Cape Verde still holds the attraction that Darwin found so irresistible when he sailed the Oceans in The Beagle 1832.

Cape Verde Islands situated in the Central Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Western Africa, just one hour south of the Canary islands where the world’s routes cross and meet, the archipelago of ten Islands join three continents.

Crystal blue waters meet soft sandy beaches, and a truly undiscovered paradise will greet you with the warm hospitality from the Islanders, who bring a fascinating combination of European, Latin and Afro culture.

The tradition s best reflected by their passion for music as well as the local cuisine, mouth wateringly famed foods made with the Sea Fresh fish and sea foods cooked in a myriad of culinary ways.

In this idyllic sun drenched location, tourists and holidaymakers have made the Islands their destination of choice, since early 2008 discovering a haven for relaxation and a playground for all water sports, deep sea fishing diving and kite surfing.

Recently voted top 3 in the Lonely Planets Guide for Must Visit destination of 2011 it’s of little surprise that investors have been increasingly attracted to take up their position as the next generation for beach front ownership.

Equally pleasing for the investor is the Cape Verde governments’ strict legislation for low density and low rise developments.

The country benefits from political and religious stability, increasing economic growth and provide the right environment to produce an exceptional return.
