JULY '2016'



Sal has pristine white sandy beaches that rival any of those found in the Caribbean. In fact, with a blend of African, Brazilian and Portuguese cultures, Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) has been dubbed the African Caribbean. Diverse unspoilt islands with beautiful quiet white beaches and turquoise clear seas.

With political and religious stability and a low crime rate, Cabo Verde has a multi cultural friendly population and a year round tropical climate with little chance of rain.

Sal Island is easily accessible from Europe – flights from UK, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Portugal and many other European and Worldwide destinations, including USA and Brazil plus many from Africa.

Great investment, rental potential and new business opportunities.

Property laws are influenced by the Portuguese legal system and the currency used can either be Euros or Escudos (local currency) which has a fixed exchange rate. There are also secure banking facilities available.

One of the only few countries ever to be promoted from the 'United Nations’ “least developed nation” category to 'Middle income country' status. This country can be highly proud as it is quite an achievement for a group of islands barely heard of a decade ago.

Cabo Verde is certainly a fine example of what a successful democracy can do for its population and development.



It's expected that within the next few years, the Cabo Verde Islands will see one million plus tourists per year with the large majority of them visiting Sal. It is also forecast that there will be a shortage of good quality accommodation in hotels or in private rentals. Sal has seen a lot of changes in the last few years and the future is looking even more exciting.

Building work is currently in progress on a new Hilton Hotel and Casino. This is very prestigious for Sal as the Hilton Group performs in depth research before committing to develop. This new development is due to open late 2016.

Work has just finished on a new town square with an impressive commercial & residential development, The Imperial well under way. Once completed, this will be followed by the construction of an improved town centre (Santa Maria Beach).

Both of these will transform the town, without losing any of its characteristics by providing commercial and up market residential properties. There are several beach front penthouses which are sure to be in demand as they will have some of the best views on the island, across the pier, the beaches and Santa Maria.

Paradise Beach has completed the first half of the development and has properties for sale at inviting prices.
