North east coast of Santo Antão, Cape Verde

The coast of Santo Antão is generally more rugged than many of the other Cape Verde islands. This mountainous island has some spectacular scenery from the coast to the top of the caldera at Cova. The island is excellent for hiking, and with a local guide you will learn about the island, its plants and animals. Santo Antão is the most westerly of the islands and only reached by ferry from Mindelo on neighbouring São Vicente.
