Our Highlights of Cape Verde’s Southern islands starts in Santiago, with short island hops to neighbouring Fogo and Maio.
They belong to the Sotavento (Leeward) islands – the southern group of Cape Verdean islands.
From Cidade Velha – the oldest settlement on Cape Verde – and the busy, hustle and bustle of Praia’s Sukopira market, to the moon-like crater landscape of Cha das Caldeiras, this holiday invites you on the best-guided sightseeing trips of Santiago and Fogo.
One of the many highlights on our Highlights of Cape Verde’s Southern Islands is a stay at the beautifully restored Colonial House Guesthouse, one of the finest examples of a Sobrado. Originally built in 1883 by the rich around a central courtyard, and decorated with fine woods and tiles. At the end of your trip , relax on the lovely white and quiet beaches of Maio.
