Vila Nova Sintra is the centre of Brava’s population and life, and the only real town on this tiny, friendly island.

Hotel Cruz Grande is a rather grand building in the town centre and is a comfortable place to base yourself whilst visiting and touring the ‘Island of Flowers’. You’re not far from the main square but of course the charm of visiting Brava is that you are not very far from anywhere!

There’s plenty to see and do on this verdant island, touring on foot from town either with or without one of our friendly local guides.

Rooms are traditional in style and are all ensuite. There’s wifi here and a well-regarded onsite restaurant. You can stay half board or choose to eat here on the day.
