Deserto de Viana, Boa Vista

4.7
#2 of 11 in Nature in Cape Verde
A long stretch of white sand, Deserto de Viana features many sand dune formations created by the constant Atlantic winds. Interspersed with sparse vegetation, these sandy hillocks can rise up to 50 m (164 ft). Come with a quad bike or a pickup truck--ideal vehicles for this type of terrain--and bring your own water and snacks as the area offers limited amenities.

  • We went into this desert to the pickup truck. It was a great trip, an amazing spectacle, with bright white sand dunes are a real experience.

  • Who loves beach holidays or surfers, like this island. There's relaxing bars with good music on the beach. The Cape Verde Islands are still a real insider tip. The Caboverdianer are friendly and helpful.

  • Too windy! Or you're a surfer or you get tired. Always impetuous blows: at night then inflates the ocean, refracted on the beach, howling incessantly like a large wounded animal.
