Sal is however a fairly dry island, not much vegetation and its very popular among kite surfers for the constant winds. The weather in march was very good, 23-25 degrees during the day and 20 during the night.
The people where very friendly, and it felt safe everywhere we went. Even when we got got off road in the desert with our jeep and ended up in very ruff townships when trying to reach a decent road, it felt quite safe.
