What’s the weather like in Cape Verde in June?
Cape Verde’s in the North Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of North Africa, which means the islands have high temperatures and year-round sun. Go to the ‘African Caribbean’ in June for ideal holiday weather with plenty of warmth, comfortable humidity and no rain. The surrounding sea will keep you cooler in Cape Verde than mainland Africa due to the trade winds and sea breezes, while it’s cooler on the coast than inland. The islands are quite windy because they’re mainly flat, which helps keep humidity down.
The average high on Sal, Cape Verde’s most popular island, is 27ºC in June. You’ll still be nice and warm in the evenings as this only drops to 21ºC at night. The sea temperature’s 23ºC, so it’s great for cooling down, while humidity’s low. There’s just a millimetre of rain, and you can expect 13 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. Make sure you use sun cream as UV levels will be extremely high. Sunset’s just after 7pm.
