Experience the magic of stand-up paddling on Boavista – an island that enchants with its breathtaking beauty and incomparable charm. Here, on this heavenly island in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean, you can experience a unique connection with nature that will touch your heart.
The best time to experience this unforgettable adventure is early in the morning when the fishermen return from their night fishing trips. As you glide along the coast on your stand-up paddle board, you can follow the fishing boats to the port of Sal Rei. Alternatively, you can paddle off in the afternoon and head towards the offshore island of “Ilheu de Sal Rei”. Here, near the reefs and islands, you can expect clear, turquoise waters and the chance to encounter some turtles swimming peacefully in their natural habitat.

While you’re on your stand-up paddle board, you’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view of the picturesque fishing town of Sal Rei. From here, you can explore the entire island, including the characteristic lighthouse that proudly watches over the coast.

For those looking for a sporty challenge, our “house reef” offers the perfect background. Here you will find small waves that you can surf with your SUP board to strengthen your balance and muscles. An ideal workout for all adventure seekers!

Our spot on Boavista, Cape Verde

Information about travel, accommodation etc.

“Boavischta”, as the locals pronounce it, is definitely a vacation highlight. It is one of the 15 Cape Verde islands and is located around 500-600 kilometers off the West African coast at the height of Dakar, a good 1000 kilometers south of the Canary Islands. Boavista is one of the most breathtaking spots in the world. The vastness, the water colors, the Cape Verdean “no stress” flair and the unique nature make the island so desirable.

As the first kite, windsurf, stand-up paddle and surf school on Boavista, we set up shop here over 17 years ago, 5-10 minutes from the town center. We deliberately chose the Tortuga Beach Club with Ruth and Leo. They have been running the restaurant for many years and offer excellent Italian cuisine and the best fish dishes.


If you want to experience the ‘joie de vivre’ of the locals in the small town of Sal Rei up close AND get the most out of water sports, then we recommend that you stay in a nice apartment as close as possible to our station.

We offer two wonderful accommodations just a 3-minute walk away. You can choose between the Cala da lua Aparthotel with its charmingly furnished rooms and optional breakfast service or the lovely Ca Nicola Hotel, which is located right on the beach and includes breakfast. You can book both accommodations through us, depending on your preference.

Of course, there are a few more accommodations, all of which have their own charm and can be booked directly by you.
