5. Sal, Cape Verde "If you surf Sal would be heaven!"

Lastminute.com reviewer Sarah says, "Weather was 26-28 during my stay. Quite windy so didn't feel the heat during the day. Evenings were a little chilly. Long layers were needed. If you surf Sal would be heaven! Very relaxed and calm vibe everywhere I went. Perfect location to escape fast paced living and just relax. Beaches of Santa Maria are beautiful. As a solo traveller I felt safe but I didn't venture far from my hotel after dark... The island is small. I did a day tour for 25 euro which was stretched out and lasted six hours."
