Walking Cape Verde | Combined Islands
The two islands, Sao Vicente and Santo Antao may be neighbors, but they contrast starkly. Sao Vicente is flatter, with a rangle of more rugged hills in the south-west. The island has many superb sandy beaches and offers some great coastal walking. It is, however, perhaps for its nightlife and cultural that it is best known. Santo Antao is relatively green and fertile. Best known for its great mountains and valleys.
