What to Pack for Your Cape Verde Vacation as Tourism Returns to The Island

If you didn’t know this, Cape Verde has reopened for tourism with no restriction from travelers worldwide. But all tourists are expected to present a negative PCR test result issued within 72 hours of arrival.


In addition, tourists who want to travel between islands must also fill out the Health Surveillance Form and show their negative PCR tests results within 72 hours of departure.

All year round, Cape Verde presents the perfect vacation destination and requires a few outfit adjustments because of its generally warm weather. So, here are some of the things to throw into your duffel bag as you prepare your trip to the sunny islands!




· Clothing

Go for outfits made of natural fibers and that are loose-fitting to stave off the sun. For example, wear a long sleeve shirt with an ultraviolet radiation protection factor. It will go a long way to protect you, especially if you want to go snorkeling or do many activities in the sun.



· Footwear

This depends on the activities you want to engage in while in Cape Verde. Flip-flops are perfect for the beach, but a pair of light walking shoes or sandals are the way to go for excursions and walking tours.


People who have hiking on their tourism itinerary should endeavor to bring along some comfortable ankle boots too.



· Sunscreen

This goes without saying. The sun in Cape Verde has no day off, even on cloudy days! It is surprisingly sunny on the islands year-round, but the irony is, it’s suitable for vitamin D production.


To mitigate the effect of excessive sunlight, be sure to throw in some tubes of authentic sunscreen products in your bag or get some as soon as you land.
