I will personally pick you up at your hotel's main entrance to ensure punctuality and safety, and after a short briefing we will begin our journey. Here are some spots we will visit: Kite Beach It is one of the best places in the world to practice kite surfing (from October to April) and is usually chosen to hold the world kite surfing championships. The salt mines In a moon like crater of an old volcano seawater turns into salt. The white and bright pink salt pans contrast with the snow-white salt mountains and the blue sky. You can also float in the medicinal salt water of the salt pans. For even more relaxation there are also scrub and mud treatments. Miragem There is sand as long as you can see and flat land exept for the brown mountains, the best place to make a creative photos that last forever, the scenery is just breathtaking and you can feel the nature and the African breeze so close. The surroundings is basically an illusions in the desert. This is a true experience on Sal island. Buracona the Blue Eye The Blue Eye is a cave 24 meters deep that is connected to the ocean. When the sun reaches the center of the sky, the sunlight illuminates the sandy bottom of the cave that gives visitors an amazing reflection that resembles a Blue Eye. A natural swimming pool resides adjacent to the Blue Eye. Palmeira Village Palmeira is the village of the fishermen, where you can find the typical colorful capeverdean houses and can still feel the real capeverdean vibes. Here, you can also find the main port of Sal. There are some traditional restaurants with delicious fresh fish and to taste. Lemon sharks Bay It is a magic place where lemon sharks swim in the shallower waters. Their fins stand firm, cutting through the water. You will catch a glimpse of their sleek, grey bodies gliding along below the surface through a break in the waves. You can decide to see from afar or even go into the water to see the animals up close. Espargos The main capital city of Sal where the locals live. At the end of the tour I will drop you off at your hotel again and safely.
