The two islands of Brava and Fogo are quite close together. To get to Brava (known as the garden island) you need to fly to Fogo and then take the ferry. There is no airport on Brava. The main town on Brava is Nova Sintra, which is one of the most attractive towns in Cape Verde. The micro climate on the island makes it ideal for flora. The gardens are lovely with an abundance of lovely plants and flowers. One of the main attractions on Brava is Faja d’Agua. This is a tiny village nestling by the sea and only reached by a mountain road.
