Many people who visit Cape Verde stay on the islands of Sal or Boa Vista. From this, many people have the impression that Cape Verde is only flat and covered in sand – desert islands in other words. However, many of the island have majestic mountain ranges. Exploring further afield to islands such as Santiago, Santo Antão, São Nicolau and Brava will prove that there is far more to this small country than sand! This picture was taken on the island of Santiago.
