27 January 2014

A group of European travel agents Saturday visited Santa Mónica beach, on the island of Boa Vista, in Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), to see the location where the future White Sands Beach and Spa resort will be built, Cape Verdean newspaper A Semana reported.

Santa Mónica, an idyllic 18-kilometre white sand beach was chosen to build the 835-room resort at the end of 2015.

David Dumble, the sales director of the Resort Group, said that the group included travel agents from Portugal, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom which “will help us promote our next tourist resort.”

White Sands Beach and Spa was designed with luxury tourism in mind, involves investment of 78 million euros and will create around 600 jobs.

The Resort Group previously built the Tortuga Beach resort on Sal island and is currently building the Dunas and Llana Beach hotels.

White Sands is one of the projects designed for Boa Vista island where two large tourist resorts are due to be built in the Chaves Integrated Tourism Development Zone. One is a five-star resort with 500 rooms and a golf course and the other is a four-star resort with 650 rooms and a water park. (macauhub)
