Explore Brava and make your Cape Verde holiday even more special. It is a mysterious island and the smallest in the archipelago, but also the greenest. It is often referred to as the ‘island of flowers’ due to its mix of unique flora and fauna.

Just 10kms across at its widest point, Brava has some of the best walking in the islands. A reasonable ferry service connects Brava to Fogo, making it easy to spend a few days or more here.






Mysterious Brava is the smallest of the inhabited islands in Cape Verde and often shrouded in mist. Known for being wet, green and difficult to reach, it is only accessible by ferry but certainly don't let that put you off.
The coastline is fringed by steep cliffs, whilst the most beautiful bay in Cape Verde is at Faja d’Agua, a lovely little village nestled at the foot of the mountains.
The walk to this small fishing village is also one of the most impressive hikes on Cape Verde. You descend along cobbled paths passing deserted villages, fertile fields to the most remote place on Cape Verde. This is also where in the 19th century American whalers used to find shelter in the pristine bay and picked up crew. Brava is probably the most American influenced of all the islands.
