Off to Cape Verde in two weeks time. Starting to think about what to pack... First question, many people keep saying pack a high sun factor, but is that factor 20, 30 or 50, all couple be considered high?
I want to get a tan but don't want to burn - any recommendations on what factor most people were using out there?
Second question, I have a good pop up beach tent that I use in the UK for sandy beaches that is lightweight and would fit in my suitcase and provides shade and protects you from the wind. Is it too windy in Cape Verde to use one of these? Thought it would be handy but don't want to waste packing space if it's not going to get used... Help please?
Lastly, if you packed creams and sprays for the flies did they work or did you still get bitten during the day and night?
Hope you can help. Feel free to throw in any other top tips that you think would be helpful...
