There are many reasons to travel to São Vicente – Mindelo. Not only the year round sunshine, the beautifull people, the music, fresh seafood and many celebrations. But also Mindelo is the gateway, the only way in fact, to travel to the wonderous island of Santo Antão.
Santo Antão’s geography is stunning and well worth a visit. It is so stunning that landing an airplane there is next to impossible. The airport was foresaken after a crash and reluctance by pilots to fly there and now a ferry from Sao Vicente is the only way to reach the island. São Vicente is therefore a perfect choice for a two island Holliday to Cape Verde .
When you book your stay here with us at Villa St. Aubyn, we are more than happy to set you up for an island tour and trip to Santo Antão. Do make sure to book with us well in advance as we tend to have full occupancy most of the time.
