Where to start

I want to visit the cape Verde islands for my 40th birthday. I love sunbathing, spas, swimming and sailing. Not into hiking, walking etc. Can anyone tell me what island would be the best to visit and what time of the year would be best for a sunbathing holiday? Thank you.

Sunny more or less all year round. Heat not as intense November to May but you will still tan.Sal fits the bill.

Just returned, went against my better judgement as i got a one way for 50 quid. Definately never again , too hot and sticky plus still in fly season. End of October better.

We went in October and had 14 days of sun , Intense sun but a nice breeze. There were a few flies and mosquitoes around. Make sure you take plenty of sun lotion with you.
