There are many activities that can be enjoyed on the island of Sal, Cape Verde. One of these is kite surfing, which is growing in popularity. One beach on the east coast of the island previously known as shark bay has been renamed Kite Beach. Here there is a nice cafe/bar and instruction is available. The sky is often full of kites and the surfers attached to the ends of the cables are darting around all over the ocean. One way to reach Kite Beach is to hire a quad bike and travel through the sand dunes, but being careful to avoid the areas where use is restricted in order to protect the turtles. It is still possible to sea the small, friendly sharks in the shallow water.
