Our Cape Verde walking holiday to Santo Antão is a must for nature lovers and keen hikers. Even the locals call it their paradise, a garden of Eden, where due to the subtropical temperature fruit and vegetables grow in abundance.
Walk down from Cova Crater on old cobbled paths to Paul Valley, past terraced fields of sweet potato and Congo beans, and banana, almond, and mango trees.
Whilst lower down in the valley the sugar-cane is grown to make grogue, a popular local spirit. Smell the freshly roasted coffee beans when you walk through the small hamlets and in the evening eat a healthy meal of locally sourced products and fresh fish.
Santo Antão is a walkers paradise and it’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful island.
