Boa Vista is at its most lively from November to June where the island experiences the least amount of rain and the temperatures are very warm.

There is plenty to do and see in and around Boa Vista Island’s incredible beaches. Santa Monica is considered the best beach here and is a famous nesting site for loggerhead turtles. Many companies also offer excursions around the island which are well-worth doing to see all of the hidden gems. As well as boat excursions, there are more high-adrenaline choices such as quad biking through Boa Vista’s dirt trails and through the sand dunes of the Deserto Viana.
In terms of accommodation, there isn’t a great number of choices on Boa Vista Island due to the fact that large parts remain under-developed. Your best option would be seeking out places to stay close to the bigger resorts like Sal Rei. Here you will find all inclusive hotels and a good selection of apartments to rent. In terms of cuisine, seafood on the island is excellent and other cuisines include Italian, Portugese and African influences. Much of the food on the island is imported so expect prices that are similar to Europe.
