Mindelo ©
Situated on the northern tip of Sao Vicente island, the lively port town of Mindelo envelops crescent-shaped Porto Grande Bay and houses almost all of the island's population.
We've included these beaches for you: Sao Pedro Beach and Praia de Bote. Discover out-of-the-way places like Art D’Cretcheu and Mercado de Peixe. There's still lots to do: stroll through Praia da Laginha, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Monte Verde, take a stroll around Positivos, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.
