About Boa Vista


The island of Boa Vista is located South from Sal and is home for 12 000 inhabitants.  The island area is 620 km2.  


The capital of the Boa Vista is Sal Rei, which looks quite cosy and almost sleepy, even though more than half of the island’s inhabitants live here. On the central plaza, the Praça de Santa Isabel with its many colourful flowers and pavilions, you can admire goods sold by the African traders. Colourful batiks and carved wood figures, as well as fruit and vegetables, are sold here. Sal Rei also has a travel agency, a health centre, a bank and a post office.


The island is known for the famous beaches and the opportunity to watch sea turtles which reside on the beach and the whales which swim across the shore.
