This tiny island is roughly 375 miles off the coast of West Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Sal is one of the Cape Verde’s Barlavento – or windward – islands, and is opening up to visitors from abroad (imagine the Canary Islands as they might have been 40 years ago). Go now, beat the rush, and do your very own bit of pioneering. You’ll have the stunning white sandy beaches pretty much to yourself.
