About São Nicolau, Cape Verde

An island in its infancy as far as tourism is concerned, and the latest addition to our Cape Verde programme, São Nicolau is a stunning, unspoilt island whose barren ranges boast some of the most spectacular scenery in the archipelago.

Sao Nicolau MountainsIt is this tranquil atmosphere and the splendour of the landscapes that draw holiday-makers to São Nicolau, offering an escape into a sedate environment, yet always promising adventure in the shape of mountain walks or horse-riding trails. Beyond nature, the island’s capital, Ribeira Brava, is a colourful colonial town home to striking architecture and beautiful gardens.
