Often shrouded in clouds, giving it a mysterious aura – the smallest island in the Cape Verde archipelago is also the greenest of them all. There is nothing but wild water between the island and the USA, and it comes as no surprise that in the 19th-century American whaling ships ended up on the island and recruited willing Cape Verdeans who started a new life on the other side of the Atlantic.
Blessed with a unique mix of flora and fauna, it’s regularly referred to as ‘The Island of Flowers’, but walkers too will be in their element. At just 10km across at its widest point, the tiny island has some of the best walks in the islands. Base yourself in Vila Nova Sintra, the island’s biggest town and it’s easy to spend at least or four days on this beautiful island and explore the island on foot.
There are no flights to Brava, because of the strong winds, but a reasonable ferry service connects the island with Fogo and Santiago. The seas around the island can be rough and you’ll need to make sure you add an extra day on Fogo as a buffer.
Recommended small travel company!
Great little company with friendly staff. Organisation of flights & accommodation very efficient. When problems arise they are helpful and very reasonable in their efforts to resolve them. We would definitely use them again for a return trip
