Organised excursions with your holiday provider will be using 4X4 Land Rovers or rugged coaches/minibuses. Otherwise, local taxis can be called upon - these are benches bolted onto the back of a pickup. A round trip to Sal Rei from the Riu Touareg will cost around 50€ or 5500 Cape Verde Escudos. Don't expect cheap travel - fuel costs are comparable with the UK. A full day will cost around 10,000 Escudos, half day around 8,000.  There are few concrete roads, most being made of volcanic cobble stones. Many beaches are only reachable by off road tracks (including Santa Monic and the ‘Shipwreck’). There are also few signposts.
