“A Desert Island Paradise”
Sal, Cape Verde - The Desert Island Sal is the sunniest island in the Cape Verde archipeligo.   One thing can be found on Sal: sand. Deserts and dry valleys, little oases, salt marches and dormant volcanoes also distinguish the appearance of the island. For many years, the island was a centre for salt mining, which is also where the name Sal (salt) comes from. The city of Santa Maria with many kilometres of beaches that are up to 200 metres wide, is the perfect base for a beach or watersports holiday.
