Islands of Cape Verde

Discover the stunning island chain of Cape Verde Archipelago with a fascinating blend of verdant mountains, wide sandy beaches, volcanic landscapes and peaceful seaside villages

Cape Verde, a destination for the discerning traveller, is an intoxicating mixture of African and Portuguese heritage offering a spellbinding blend of both influences in their architecture, food, customs, traditions and friendly welcoming islanders.

A region full of beauty offering a diverse range of landscapes from verdant mountains and lush hills to volcanic landscapes, from white sandy beaches and turquoise seas to the arid interior of Sal. Santiago is the largest and the most African of all the Cape Verde islands, Fogo a large conical volcano which rises out from the sea, Mindelo the thriving cultural capital of San Vicente with its beautiful colonial architecture and the hometown of Cesaria Evora, Cape Verde’s most famous musician and lastly the dramatic scenery and green mountains of San Antão.

With a tropical climate year-round, the terrain, the people and the ecological structure differ considerably from island to island and even the most intrepid traveller is likely to find more variety on this group of islands than on many of the world’s largest continents.
