Unusual places,  Beaches,  Islands
Unusual places, 

Architectural monuments of the colonial period, museums of history and culture of the indigenous people, travel by buggy, and yacht trips... It does not matter what program the experienced guides and tour operators offer to tourists, most of all travelers, packing their bags, are interested in beaches and coastal waters, as well as all types of active recreation that do not require leaving the ocean. There is only one question, what should they choose: white or golden sands, waves for surfing or calm waters for diving, or maybe something new, differing from standard sandy beaches.

You can find the first, second, and third option in the small state of Cabo Verde, on its Islands. But if the desire to see something new is stronger than anything else, you need to visit the island of Fogo and its famous Ponta da Salina beach.

The entire coast of the amazing volcanic island looks picturesque and is worth your attention. But only on this beach, surrounded by high black rocks, the ocean waters are calm. They entice you to swim and dive here. Because the entire natural bay of the Atlantic Ocean is closed from the wind and looks like a giant pool, the water is incredibly warm, while the underwater world is colorful. The coastal area of the island is filled with bizarre coral reefs and underwater caves. And the mysterious labyrinth of long tunnels and numerous caverns attracts scuba and cave divers from all over the world to these places.

Those who like to stay on land will also not forget their vacation on the Ponta da Salina beach. Walks on black volcanic sand and impressive photo sessions are not the only advantages of these places. If you come to the stone gates of high rocks, you can see a fantastic view of the endless ocean, full of swimming whales and dolphins.
