ION CLUB & Morabeza Hotel

Make the most of your kitesurfing, windsurfing, wingfoil and SUP holiday with ION CLUB Sal.

“Little country, I love you very much…” goes the song by Cesaria Evora about her native Cape Verde.

When we were still known as Club Mistral, ION CLUB was one of the first to explore the magnificent island of Cape Verde, following in the footsteps of 2 French men, François Guy and Patrick Heintz. Driven by the trade winds from the Canaries, after spending the summer there, we landed on the island of Sal. Throughout the winter these same trade winds settled on Sal, much to our delight.

That was back in 1989 when there were just two hotels on the beach, the Mozabeza and the Belhorizonte. Very quickly we all formed strong bonds, driven by our love of the island, the local culture, the people and the landscapes.

Our very first Club Mistral was built on the beach, just opposite the Morabeza hotel. At that time our customers would come and go between the hotel and the club, depending on the daily wind forecast. Then we opened the Ponta Leme center a little further east, to get closer to the point and to the waves.

35 years later, the village of Santa Maria has evolved considerably. Our centers have expanded, as has the Morabeza hotel. We continue to welcome customers from all over the world.

ION CLUB and Sal, like Morabeza and Sal, represent a great love story, and one of the best playgrounds for our favourite board sports.


Hotel Morabeza is a 4* hotel located in front of the beautiful sandy beach of Santa Maria, and a 5 minute walk from the ION CLUB Santa Maria center.

This hotel is one of the oldest and most authentic in the area. Founded in 1967 by a Belgian couple, it has always been maintained by members of the family.  

The atmosphere at the hotel is very pleasant with hospitality at the heart of their expertise. The spacious and floral outdoor spaces are organised around the various rooms and the 3 outdoor swimming pools. The hotel offers many services such as tennis courts, miniature golf, a gym and petanque. Several times a week it welcomes local musicians to liven up the evenings.  

What we find particularly enchanting about the Morabeza hotel is the feeling of well-being, almost as if you were at home. It’s easy to get to the beach to soak up the sun, easy to get to the center as soon as the wind conditions are right, and easy to explore the charming village as you stroll through the streets of Santa Maria. If you have a car, you can also move around the island as you please, whether it’s to enjoy a drink at sunset, chat with the locals or sample the island’s specialities.

What to do in Cape Verde and at the Morabeza Hotel 

In Cape Verde, and more particularly on the island of Sal, board sports enthusiasts are in for a real treat! Between the wave spots and the calmer waters, there’s something for everyone, whether you have come to windsurf, kitesurf or wingfoil. For the more experienced, you can even go and ride the famous Ponta Preta wave if you’re feeling brave! For the rest, there is nothing like watching the thrilling spectacle from the beach!

Cape Verde also offers many activities, such as diving, boat trips, lazing around (and yes, this is an activity!), and much more besides. You can organise some of these activities directly with the hotel: boat trip on a trimaran to visit the island of Boa Vista, car hire to explore the island, scuba diving.  

Finally, within the Morabeza hotel itself you can enjoy the cool of the swimming pools, read a book in the shade of the palm trees, play pétanque, table tennis or tennis. There is also mini golf, a volleyball court on the beach and fitness classes … something for everyone!
