Known for its long stretches of white-sand beaches and year-round sunshine, the island of Sal in Cape Verde is best explored off the main roads. Get out for an adventurous sightseeing tour on this 4-hour off-roading trip from Santa Maria, which lets you access beaches, salt flats, and more wilderness inaccessible by cars.
What to Expect
Begin your 4-hour off-road adventure with pickup from your hotel in Santa Maria prior to your selected departure time. Or, opt to meet your guide at Djadsal Moradias if you prefer. Either way, remember to bring your driver license to show as proof of your ability to drive before getting in gear for your adventure.

Start your ride to Igrejinha Lagoon on an automatic off-road buggy with a maximum capacity of two passengers. Then, head to the salt flats of Santa Maria and ride on its surrounding sand dunes before continuing to the white sands of Kite Beach. Other stops include Ponta Preta beach, Palha Verde Oasis, and Calheta Funda volcanic beach.

Throughout the ride, your guide will lead you down the most exciting (and safe!) off-roading paths en route to some of Sal’s most beautiful destinations.

Return to your hotel at the end of your tour.
