A trip to Cofete is the perfect day out for any holidaymaker with an adventurous side. You’ll have to journey off-the-beaten-track to reach this village, which boasts an incredible landscape.
Head over to the two naturally unspoiled stretches of sand, Playa de Cofete and Playa de Barlovento. Then, admire the coastline and rugged wilderness as you explore the area on a 4×4 tour!
Next, take in the brilliant view of the ocean and the mountains from El Islote, a large rocky outcrop that separates the beaches. If you want to get away from it all, this secluded spot should do the trick!
These beaches used to be the site of a turtle reintroduction programme. Eggs collected in Cape Verde were buried in the sand here so that the turtles could be released into the sea. If you were hoping to catch a glimpse of these creatures, don’t worry; tourists can visit the turtle nursery in Morro Jable harbour.
