With less than six hours flying time and no jet lag, Parque das Dunas Hotel (www.parquedasdunas.com) on Boa Vista, Cape Verde is a great destination for frantic families seeking a sunshine break. And now with the announcement by The Cape Verde Experience of two new flight routes out of Bristol and Stansted from December 2010, this sand dune isle is more accessible than ever before!
The perfect place for parents to relax and unwind, Parque das Dunas Hotel is an established boutique hotel that boasts seven miles of white-sand beach, guaranteeing plenty of space for both sandcastle competitions and a relaxing sunbathe.
In addition, a tropical warm sea awaits, perfect for water babies (or perhaps their older siblings) looking to try windsurfing or even kite-surfing for the first time as well as plenty of fun activities inland, including a thrilling dune buggy ride through the impressive desert-like dunes.
Beach Bungalow in Cape Verde
The charming and informal hotel comprises 48 bungalow-style rooms, each with patio and stunning sea-views and many with direct access to the beach, in addition to an open restaurant, bar and large swimming pool with kids section.
On the recent announcement of the new flights launching, Agostinho Monteiro, general manager of Parque das Dunas Hotel says “Cape Verde has remained a popular destination for the British holidaymaker, but the lack of flight competition over the last two years has proved quite a barrier. The introduction of new flights from London and Bristol by The Cape Verde Experience is therefore very exciting for us, as it will give all of the best independent hotels on the island the chance to break the current Thomson monopoly and offer better choice to the consumer. So a win – win for everyone, and will hopefully help to put Boa Vista back on the map!”
The Cape Verde Experience (0845 330 2071 / www.capeverdeexperience.co.uk) is offering seven nights at Parque das Dunas Hotel from £699 per person (based on two sharing). Departing Bristol or Stansted in March 2011, the price includes flights, accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis, resort transfers and taxes.
