    Mindelo

    Mindelo, Cape Verde

    Mindelo is the main town in the island. In opposition to the lack of "life" around the island, Mindelo is a very vibrant town. Nice restaurants where lobster is a "must eat" dish and very unexpensive too. Even the nightlife is very surprising.

    Eagle, Ilha de S��o Vicente

    It was erected in order to memorize the first flight across the Southern Atlantic in 1922. The portuguese naval pilots Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral made a stop in São Vicente on their difficult way from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro.

    Hang out with the locals

    by Gido Written Aug 25, 2005

    Laginha is the city beach of Mindelo. Hang out here for an entire day and you'll see most of the locals. There's a different crowd every hour, where families come early and young people spend the afternoon. There's fun, music, drinks... prepare for a very nice time.

    A whole beach to yourself

    by Gido Written Sep 30, 2004

    Near Calhau you find the Praia Grande, a very big and empty beach which comes alive in weekends only. You can have it to yourself the rest of the time. Mind the everpresent and lethal currents and you'll have a great time.

    Lack of vegetation

    Mindelo, Cape Verde

    The Cape Verde islands are of volcanic origin and São Vicente is one of the most arid. The lack of vegetation is impressive and only some tiny spots in the island have a few trees and bushes.
