Carbeirinho auf São Nicolau
The Carbeirinho is known as one of the seven natural wonders of Cape Verde. This spectacular, colourful rock formation has been carved by the wind and sea for centuries. The bay can only be accessed at low tide, the way down is steep and can get slippery, however the view from the bottom is well worth the effort.
The Shipwreck of the Cabo Santa Maria
The Spanish cargo ship Cabo Santa Maria ran aground off the coast of the island of Boa Vista in 1968. The wreck not only looks spectacular but also has a lot of history to offer. Gifts from the fascist Spanish government to its overseas supporters were loaded as cargo. You can reach the impressive metal skeleton by off-road vehicle, quad bike or after a long walk.
Pico do Fogo - the fire summit of Fogo Island
Pico do Fogo is an active volcano on the island of Fogo and, at 2'829 metres, the highest elevation of the Cape Verde Islands. The landscape around the mighty volcanic mountain is shaped by the lava of the last eruptions and looks incredibly primeval and elemental. Climb to the summit of fire and enjoy a breathtaking view of the archipelago and the paradisiacal landscape of Fogo Island after the strenuous ascent.
