Cape Verde – A Pearl in the Atlantic
The island of Santo Antão
About 500 nautical miles west of Senegal lies the archipelago and country of Cabo Verde. With a varying degree of altitude and therefore precipitation, the islands’ natural landscapes vary from arid volcanic deserts to tall standing cliffs with lush vegetation and frequent rainfall.
Santo Antão is a prime example of this second type of environment.
It’s the most north easterly island of the group and very exposed to the prevailing winds and swells of the Atlantic Ocean.
Deep blue tones contrast with sharp mountains and virgin greenery.
An enchanting setting, so unique and untouched… a pearl in the ocean.
