While your decision to invest in overseas property will, of course, be made with a keen eye towards the prospects of capital growth and solid returns, the lifestyle benefits that come with owning your very own piece of paradise in the sun should not be overlooked – especially when you’ve got an adventurous young family at the heart and soul of everything you do.

Good overseas property investment opportunities are those that can provide both assured returns and a holiday home for you and your family to enjoy as and when you wish. What’s more, the location should be somewhere where the sun never stops shining, the waters are warm and crystal clear, and where there’s no shortage of adventure-filled activities on offer for all ages.

Well, you will be pleased to know that there is such a place. It’s a tropical oasis 300 miles off the west coast of Africa, and the overseas property investment opportunities on offer are indeed as exciting as the adrenaline-fuelled attractions that keep holidaymakers coming back again and again, year after year. And it’s a water sports haven, to boot.

White Sands Hotel & Spa – Amazing Overseas Property for Families

On the glorious, tropical Islands of Cape Verde, the construction of a brand new 5-star luxury Resort is well underway – the White Sands Hotel & Spa.

In short, combined with the year-round sunshine, the impeccable Cape Verdean hospitality, and the wealth of unmissable adventure-filled water sports activities the country has to offer, the White Sands Hotel & Spa has everything you need to keep the whole family happy – and the overseas investment properties available will be a secure source of assured returns to boot.

Water Sports in Cape Verde

Cape Verde is the ideal holiday destination for those who seek a few water sporting thrills and adventures during their getaways. With tailor-made experiences for both beginners and the more experienced across a wide range of pursuits, purchasing a property in Cape Verde means that you and your family will be able to experience something new each time you come back.


US-born, two times world windsurfing champion Josh Angulo has made Cape Verde his new home – and it’s not hard to guess why. The shores off Cape Verde present some of the very best windsurfing conditions in the world, with the Island of Sal regularly hosting world-class competitions. Indeed, Angulo is quoted as saying that Ponta Preta is the very best windsurfing beach on the planet, while over on Boa Vista – where the White Sands Hotel & Spa is being built – Santa Maria Bay reliably serves up excellent conditions for beginners.


The same conditions that make Cape Verde such a great location for windsurfing also bring in the kitesurfers. Kitesurfing is one of the fastest-growing water sports around, and on the Islands of Boa Vista and Sal there’s barely a day that goes by without the sky being strewn with colourful kites of all shapes and sizes, as kiteboarders harness the gusty winds to propel themselves across the waves on specially-designed surfboards. There are plenty of kite schools to choose from if you’re a beginner, or, if you know what you’re doing and just need to hire the kit, you’ll find outlets on both Sal and Boa Vista, too.


If you just want to surf minus a sail of any kind, you’ll be pleased to know that the waves rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean to break on Cape Verde shores make for top surfing conditions – especially from November to February. As with windsurfing and kitesurfing, there’s no shortage of options for both beginners and the more experienced. You’ll find surf schools if you’re a complete novice or places to hire a board if you don’t want to bring your own on the plane all the way from home. You can do the same with a wetsuit, though the waters are warm enough to hit the waves in just your board shorts and rash vest (even in winter!).


Beyond the waves and the surfers riding them, a great way to explore the stunning coasts of Cape Verde is of course from the water on a sailboat. Sailing is very popular on both Sal and Boa Vista, and no matter if you need some guidance and tutoring if you’re a complete beginner, or just need to hire a boat for you and your family to set sail in, you’ll find ample opportunity on both Islands.

White Sands Hotel & Spa – An excellent Investment Choice for Families

Whether it’s windsurfing, sailing, surfing or even just snorkelling that gets you and your family excited, you’ll find no end of water sports opportunities on Cape Verde.

A featured story in Sailing Today tells of sailing enthusiast Jonathan Prais taking his wife and five children on a four-week sailing tour of the Cape Verde Islands. They visited nine of the ten Islands in the archipelago, staying for a few days on each one before heading off again. It’s a fantastic story of a family making the most of what the wonderful water sports opportunities the country has to offer, and well worth a read.

Indeed, Cape Verde really is where dream holidays like this come true, and with your very own overseas property in the luxury White Sands Hotel & Spa on Boa Vista serving as your base, you can create your own unforgettable family adventures like this year after year from now until forever.
