This desert is located in the northwestern part of Boa Vista, east of the towns of Sal Rei and Rabil. The desert is approximately 20km in length and 4km wide and rises to some 50m. Some of the northern part of the desert forms a protected area called the Boa Esperança Nature Reserve.
Re: Can I snorkel inn Boa Vista 16 Jun 2013, 07:27 You are right, Boa Vista is better for a relaxing holiday rather than for an active one. I am afraid that the sea is too rough for snorkeling at that time of the year. But instead, there are some good excursions, such as touring the island with a quad or making a trip to one of the other islands.
