Pick of the Week

Located in the heart of Ribeira Brava in the centre of the island, Pensão Bela Sombra is a strikingly bright property, surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery.

With the heart of São Nicolau’s capital right on your doorstep, when staying at Pensão Bela Sombra, you couldn’t be better placed to enjoy the culture of the town, and the adventure which awaits in the neighbouring mountains and beyond. 

The property itself can be found along one of the town’s narrow winding streets, standing out due to its outstanding pink and purple façade. The bright colours provide a theme throughout the hotel, with the 20 simple but well-presented guestrooms offering a comfortable base for your stay. Where views from the top floor balcony are superb, presenting the lush green mountains and the promise of adventure!

The hotel’s restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and serves up some fantastic dishes, but being in the centre of town you also have the option to eat out and experience a variety of Cape Verdean cuisine.  

Take some time to enjoy the natural beauty which São Nicolau is known for, by embarking on one of the various walking routes or guided walking tours on offer, exploring a deserted beach or spending some time birdwatching – the choice is yours.
