Sal Island, Cape Verde

Continuing with the holiday theme... Cape Verde sounds like a pretty interesting destination, and one I wouldn't mind being in right now - according to Wikipedia, this place has on average 350 days of sunshine a year! Gilles of Belgium went there on holiday and sent me this card.

This postcard shows Sal, an island in Cape Verde. It belongs to the northern group of islands, called Barlavento. The island is composed by a single administrative division, the Sal municipality. The island is 30 km long by 12 km wide. It is one of the three sandy eastern islands (Sal, Boa Vista and Maio) of the archipelago, with white sandy beaches and fairly flat. The highest elevation of 406 m is at Monte Grande.

I couldn't find any info on the stamp...
