Random Sand Fact

Recurrent winds carrying grains of sand build up rolling sand dunes of the Sahara in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Making Cape Verde an attractive place for tourism.

High winds blow Saharan sand over the ocean to land on Cape Verde’s islands, creating smooth dues. At the same time, it sand-blasts and erodes the island’s windward sides, leaving jagged rocks and barren mountains.

Whether you’re up to exploring the rough mountains or flowing dunes of Cap Verde, sand is part of the creation of the landscape.
