It is the least visited island of Cape Verde and still relatively unspoiled by tourism. This means that its lovely secluded beaches offer a great counterpoint to those of Sal and Boavista, where the beaches are much busier.
Try a jeep safari around the island and discover the many beaches which are hidden from the road. Salina de Porto Inglês – a large salt lake – is worth a visit if you’re a keen bird watcher or if you’re interested to see how the salt is sorted, ground and packed by local women.
Make sure you take some time to visit the attractive town of Vila do Maio (the main town on the island) with its colourfully painted houses and narrow cobbled streets.
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
A wonderful break in a beautiful environment
