Which Island to Choose?

Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa with Senegal and Mauritania their nearest African neighbours, this archipelago of tropical islands stretches between latitudes 14° and 20° N placing them on the same latitude as Jamaica and The Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, whilst the Canary Islands lay 1000km to the north.

SAL – White sand beaches and turquoise sea
Sal has the widest choice of hotels, and is the most convenient island to visit, as all international flights currently land here. The journey to Santa Maria, where the hotels are, takes just 20 minutes and on the way you will get an indication of the arid and bare landscape that makes up the majority of the island. The capital Espargos and the fishing port of Palmeira are well worth a visit during your stay. It is the white sand beaches and water sports that people come to Sal for, plus the low key, but quite lively nightlife of Santa Maria.

SANTIAGO – The most African of all the Islands
Santiago is the largest island and has a rich and interesting history. From here slave ships from the West African coast would stop before continuing their journey to the Americas. This is predominately a green and mountainous island. At the centre there are two mountain ranges in between which there are lush valleys supporting a variety of agriculture. Praia, the capital of Cape Verde is great for music and has a colourful, bustling African market. No visit to Santiago would be complete without a trip to the old capital of Cidade Velha.

SÃO VICENTE – Music, art and culture
São Vicente is generally considered to be the cultural centre of the Islands and Mindelo, the capital, is proud of its rich tradition of music and art. The cobbled streets and 19th century architecture of Mindelo is reminiscent of colonial times past. There are lovely sandy beaches and the island is reputed to be one of the world’s best windsurfing and body-boarding destinations.

SANTA ANTÃO – Marvellous mountainous scenery
A regular ferry service from São Vicente, takes just one hour. A day trip will allow you to traverse the island and see some of the spectacular scenery. The drive from Porto Novo over the mountain range to Ribeira is dramatic with the landscape quickly changing from being bare and arid to mountains, which as the road twists and turns, gives breathtaking views of verdant valleys.

FOGO – The island with a live volcano
The Pico de Fogo volcano rises to over 1700 metres. The scenery is simply stunning: dark rocks and black sands give an impression of a lunar landscape. This is where the famous Fogo wine is produced. São Filipe, the capital is a very pretty town, the old colonial pastel shaded buildings providing a complete contrast to the rest of the island.

BOA VISTA – Unspoilt expanses of beach and sea
Ringed by reefs, Boavista is a diver’s paradise with many wrecks to explore, as well as being an excellent centre for windsurfing and fishing. The island is for relaxing on fabulous white sandy beaches and enjoying the tranquility, as apart from water sports there is little else to do. If you are very lucky you may see the turtles nesting on the beaches!

MAIO – Located 25km to the east of Santiago
The terrain is similar to that found on Sal and Boavista although parts of the island have been re-forested and there is more fertile land in the east supporting some agricultural development.

SANTA LUZIA – The smallest of the islands
This island is dry, arid and uninhabited and the only way to get there is by finding a local fisherman in Calhau, São Vicente to take you.

SÃO NICOLAU – A quiet tranquil island
Excellent for walking and popular with bird watchers, it is also home to the endangered fairytale dragon tree. Riberia Brava, the capital is small and clings to the fertile slopes of the mountainside and taking a short walk from the centre will lead you into lush plantations of banana, maize and papaya.

BRAVA – This is the smallest, greenest island
Because it is mostly shrouded in mist, it creates an atmosphere, allowing a rich assortment of flora and fauna to grow. It can be reached by ferry from Fogo.
