Averages for Cape Verde in July
Due to its semi-desert climate bringing year round warm and sunny weather, Cape Verde is continuing to grow in popularity as a holiday destination. With its African and Creole heritage, the islands provide a touch of the exotic without the long haul flights.
July in Cape Verde is warm, with temperature reaching around 27 degrees Celsius and rarely dropping below 22 degrees. July sees minimal rainfall of just 0.03mm on average, and this month also marks the end of the windy season so travellers may find it much more comfortable.
July is a great time to visit the island of Boa Vista, which celebrates Municipality Day each year on July 4th. Hundreds of locals and visitors descend upon the town of Sal Rei to celebrate Saint Isabel, the Patron Saint of Boa Vista. Although this is a cultural and religious festival, there are plenty of activities for travellers to partake in such as football games, boat races, horse riding and dance.
July is also a fantastic time to visit Boa Vista due to its turtle inhabitants. Although only small, the island is the third most important nesting site for loggerhead turtles in the world and, between June and September each year, over 3000 turtles are expected to come ashore to lay eggs. The Turtle Foundation aims to protect these creatures whilst educating locals and visitors by organising dedicated turtle tours for those wanting to see the creatures up close and learn more about them.
The Marine Club Beach Resort offers affordable accommodation with rooms costing as little as £33 per night. Taking advantage of the dry climate, both on-site bars, Bar Praia and Bar Rochino, are located outdoors and provide a romantic setting for a couple of evening cocktails. There’s also a restaurant, Tartarughino, which serves up local foods, buffet style.
