When planning a Cape Verde holiday make sure to include São Nicolau, a delightful, quiet island, with an air of sophistication and home to the archipelago’s prettiest town Ribeira Brava.
From the coast cobbled paths and terraced fields stretch up into the green mountainside transforming the island into a walkers paradise, with amazing views along the way. People say that there’s a unique mood on this island and the beaches at Tarrafal are rumoured to have healing powers so don’t be surprised when you see explorers buying sand.
There is much to see and do when travelling around the islands of Cape Verde. On São Nicolau we are able to offer experiences which reflect the highlights of the island by allowing you to step off the beaten track or indulge in some of the more active activities on offer.
Hotel options are very limited on Sao Nicolau, however there are a few small comfortable B&Bs and guesthouses to choose from.
