São Vicente

Petite, unambiguous and undulating, the island of São Vicente, remained practically uninhabited until the mid-nineteenth century.  Of volcanic origin, it is semi-flat, Monte Verde, the island’s highest peak.  Cabo Verde's prettiest city Mindelo, complete with cobblestone streets, candy-coloured colonial buildings and yachts bobbing in a peaceful harbour, resembles the French Riveria.

For those who prefer a calmer lifestyle, there is nothing better after a sumptuous dinner than a stroll along the promenade to observe Monte Cara on the opposite side,  named the locals say because of its the resemblance to a human face and whose profile stands out on the horizon at sunset.
