Facts about Cape Verde
Discovered by the Portuguese in 1465, the Cape Verde (or Cabo Verde) islands were totally uninhabited. However due to their position and accessibility for the Trade Routes, the Cape Verde islands became part of the Portuguese empire thirty years after they were originally discovered. Consequently, the majority of the populace of Cape Verde today are either of Portuguese or West African descent. The languages spoken on Cape Verde are Portuguese and Criuolo. (a hybrid of Portuguese and West African).
Cape Verde has been Independent since 1975 and has one of the most stable democratic governments in Africa. For this reason, it is enjoying a period of extensive, progressive development that has lead to the stimulation and encouragement of overseas property investment in Cape Verde.
Cape Verde is an island of contrasts. The western islands of the group are mountainous (the highest point being Mt. Fogo on Fogo) and offer challenging climbing conditions, whilst the islands in the east are renowned for their fabulous beaches. But all of them benefit from a temperate, warm climate similar to that of the Canary Islands and the Balearics. These conditions promote the cultivation of coffee beans, corn, sugar cane, sweet potatoes, bananas and peanuts.
For visitors to the islands interested in marine pursuits such as scuba diving, snorkelling and marine life in general, the Cape Verde islands offer facilities aplenty. There are three fascinating shallow water shipwreck sites (with others to be opened up soon), and always something rewarding to discover when exploring off any of the islands. There are beautiful coral reefs, huge rock formations, undersea caves and canyons where sea life is plentiful. The rare loggerhead turtle, trigger fish, trumpet fish, parrot fish, balloon fish, manta rays, coney grouper, yellow-tailed snapper, barracuda and yellow-fin tuna and many other species are all commonly seen at various times of year, whilst March and April can bring the dramatic sight of migrating grey and humpback whales.
