Entertainment is guaranteed in this all-inclusive hotel on Sal Island: the activity programmes, the choice of water sports available on the beach, the RiuLand children's club, the children's swimming pool with slides, and the Splash Water World water park offer the best entertainment. However, if you want to return home feeling totally refreshed, head to the Renova Spa, which includes a gym, a steam room, and a wide range of treatments to suit all needs.

Sal Island is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday in paradise. We recommend visiting the natural pools in Buracona, the old fishing village of Pedra de Lume, or Palmeira, a fishing village where the island's only port is located.
