If you want to get to the shipwreck, it is best to start from the island capital Sal Rei in an off-road hired car. The journey takes only half an hour.

Deserto de Viana

Deserto de Viana

The Viana Desert is located in the northwestern part of Boa Vista. The desert is characterised by light sand, which was transported from the African continent to Cape Verde. If you want to cross the desert, it is best to leave the hired car at your accommodation and have an experienced guide pick you up with a quad. The reflection of the sun on the sand is like on snow. For this reason you should provide sun protection and, above all, good sunglasses. Take a walk, jet over the dunes with your quad or try sandboarding. Fun for the whole family is guaranteed in the Viana Desert.
