What's the weather like in Cape Verde in March

Spring comes and in March temperatures rise as winter loses its grasp and Cape Verde becomes even more attractive.

Temperature

Average daytime temperatures stay steadily at 23 degrees Celsius while daytime high peaks climb up to 25 degrees. Night time temperature can drop as low as 18 degrees Celsius, but barring extraordinary climatic phenomena, it never drops any lower.

Sea Temperature

Sea temperature also stays at 23 degrees (same as in previous months) thanks to the conflicting sea currents; cold currents rush from North Atlantic while warm currents from western Africa regulate the sea temperature around Cape Verde's archipelago.

Sunshine Hours

Cape Verde enjoys 8 hours of daily sunshine in March and this is yet another relatively dry month. Even though the islands see rain during 4 days of the month, that rain amounts only to a measly 1mm of total precipitation.

Wind

In March, strong north-western winds are frequent on many Barlavento islands. These winds also affect the Sotavento islands, but to a much smaller extent. These winds are known to reach a force of 4, 5 and sometimes 6.

Cape Verde Hotels for March

Cape Verde Beaches for March

The beach at Farol da Ponta Norte is secluded and windy, it's on the northernmost tip of Sal. Overlooked by a scenic lighthouse and boasting the finest white sand, the Farol de fiura beach attracts naturists for the tranquillity and water sports enthusiasts for the healthy surfs.

Fajã de Água is another secluded beach on the small island of Brava. Tourists can see impressive flora and fauna specimens that are unique only to the Cape Verdean Archipelago.

Things to do in Cape Verde in March

The island of Santo Antao is described as a cross between Morocco and the Himalayas, with a dry, desert-like climate to the south of the island and a wet, humid climate in the mountainous region to the north. The northerly mountains of Ponta do Sol make for excellent hiking and the hour long trek from Ponta do Sol to the steep cliffs of Fontain is a popular route amongst seasoned hikers. The colourful village perched on the cliff makes for a spectacular view and is a perfect photo opportunity.

Dates for the diary

Towards the end of February and early March, the liveliest carnival on Cape Verde takes place. The Sao Vicente Creole Carnival is a unique mélange of cultures and is very similar to traditional Brazilian carnivals but also African feasts. The blend is unique and the parties truly unforgettable. The whole theme is a mix of Brazilian, Portuguese and African flavours with street parades and huge, island-wide celebrations.

Every March the 8th, Cape Verde celebrated woman's day as a true democratic nation. The archipelago of islands is considered a leading example on women's rights and this is celebrated each year with talks, parades and political debates that promote Cape Verdean freedom and culture.
