Winter months in Cape Verde

The winter months in Cape Verde are the peak season for visitors. The most popular time to visit is from the end of October through to May. If you are planning to island hop then it is a good idea to book your domestic travel and your accommodation as early as possible. We have information from two or three sources, that internal flights and accommodation are getting booked up quickly this winter. This, of course, is great news for the Cape Verde economy, which was so badly hit by the covid pandemic. However, for people who prefer to do everything at the last minute, this is could be problematic.

If you find the Bestfly Cabo Verde flights are booked up on the dates you want, you may consider trying a ferry, by visiting CVInterihas the ferry operators. There is information on both internal flights and ferries on our travel page. International flights are available to Boa Vista, Sal, Santiago (Praia) and São Vicente. From those islands you can then connect to the other islands where there is no international airport.

We have an agent on the ground in Cape Verde who can assist with booking internal travel if you have problems. Just send us a message and we will put you in touch with them. If you would like to have a full holiday arranged for you including international travel, this Holiday Team on Discover Cape Verde could assist you. Why not escape the cold and spent some time during winter in Cape Verde?
