The Cape Verde archipelago is made up of ten islands with wonderful sandy beaches and volcanic reliefs and is divided into two groups:
The Windward Islands (Barlavento) group together the most westerly islands of Santo Antão, its neighbour São Vicente, Santa Luzia (totally deserted and uninhabited), São Nicolau, Boa Vista and Sal, the most northerly, where international flights arrive.
You can only reach Santo Antão by boat, so take the opportunity for unforgettable walks through the mountains and the villages clinging to the hillsides. It is nicknamed ‘Grog Island’, with reference to the typical brandy made from sugar cane.
São Vicente Island, in the north of the archipelago, is the second most populous island in Cape Verde. You can pick up your rented yacht from the marina in Mindelo, the cultural capital of Cape Verde. It is the home town of the famous singer Cesária Évora, the barefoot diva.
The small island of Santa Luzia is a magnificent desert island with white sandy beaches. This nature reserve is a refuge for many animals. For a getaway, we recommend that you moor your boat at Praia de Palmo.
Sao Nicolau is one of the radiant Barlavento Islands! Very beautiful with dream beaches, breathtaking scenery and fabulous landscapes. It is one of the few to retain its values and culture. Moor in Carriçal, an isolated village in the east of the island: a change of scenery, cheerfulness and good humour are guaranteed.
Boa Vista is home to the plain, the oasis, the beach and the desert. From your yacht, you will be amazed by the whiteness of the sand. Weigh anchor for a few hours and enjoy a thrilling experience touring the island on a quad.
