Transport on islands
Most of the tourists travel to Cape Verde by air.
From all major islands (Santiago, Sal and Sao Vicente), regular flights depart daily.
Air transport is operated directly by Cape Verde Airlines or smaller private carriers.
There is also the possibility of shipping on the islands, but not as regular as an airplane.
However, shipping is cheaper.
Bus services are generally available in large cities.
In the smaller town, you will be dependent on taxis.
In the tourist areas there are available car or motorbike rentals (scooters are also popular)
Many hotels will arrange for you to rent a vehicle including the necessary insurance.
We recommend renting a 4×4 off-road vehicle.
Off-town journeys are not the best; they are often just rainy tracks in the desert.
