Mindelo, Cape Verde

Mindelo, Cape Verde

Located on the northern part of the island of Sao Vicente, the capital city of Mindelo is considered “Cape Verde's answer to the Riviera”, complete with brightly colored colonial buildings, cobblestone streets, and a variety of lively bars, cafés and restaurants. Go to the top of Monte Verde for panoramic views of Porto Grande and Bahia das Gatas Bay, and visit the historic Torre de Belem, which overlooks the city center, and is conveniently located next to the bustling fish market. Spend the day at one the island’s many beaches—including Laginha, Praia Grande and Calhau—or head to Sao Pedro, renowned as one of the best Cape Verdean beaches for windsurfing. At night, head to the Praca Nova district for an evening of dining, dancing and local music.
