Cruises from Porto Grande
The almost lunar volcanic islands that form the Cape Verde archipelago lie about 500 km off the Senegal coast. Although the isles may be African geographically speaking, they have retained a strong Latin flavour. Porto Grande, the port for the capital Mindelo, is on the windward isle of Sao Vicente and is home to over 90% of the island’s inhabitants. The port itself boasts a delightful waterfront area where the pace is pleasantly slow and the people friendly.
Then there is the pure white sand of ‘Seven Mile Beach’ and its crystal clear tropical water that is perfect for relaxing.
