More adventurous souls however might want to explore some other islands as well. Praia, the capital of Cape Verde, is located on the island of Santiago, the largest in the archipelago.

The city of Mindelo on the island of São Vicente is however considered as the cultural capital of Cape Verde and makes for a festive destination.

From Mindelo, you can take the ferry to the rugged island of Santo Antão, which is widely considered as the most beautiful of all the Cape Verde islands.

It mixes mountainous volcanic landscapes with lush green valleys in the island’s interior and somewhat feels like an African version of Hawaii.
