Santo Antao Vacation Packages

Far from the trappings of big city life, Santo Antao is located 180 miles (290 kilometers) northwest of Cape Verde's capital, Praia.

The ocean is home to different experiences for everyone. Some appreciate the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, others find that they are inspired and then we mustn't forget those who complain about the sand. No matter which one you identify with, chances are you will love Cape Verde's beaches. A popular stretch of coastline, Laginha Beach, is 17 miles (27 kilometers) southeast of Santo Antao, while Sao Pedro Beach is 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the southeast.

Fontainhas and Ponta do Sol are popular spots.

Learn more about the area by visiting nearby Boca de Coruja. It boasts Chã da Igreja and Cruzinha, and it's only 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the northeast. Continue on your way 9 miles (14 kilometers) to the northeast of Santo Antao for more to do and see. Here, in Caculi, you might like Eito and Cabo de Ribeira.

You're certain to have fun at Cultural Center of Mindelo, Monte Verde and Mount Verde in Mindelo, just 17 miles (27 kilometers) southeast of Santo Antao. For even more fun, head to Salamansa and Baía das Gatas.

Make sure your trip to Santo Antao is memorable by indulging in some outdoor activities in Cape Verde, like mountain climbing and hiking.

Shore fishing and sunbathing are just a couple of the more low-key activities in the surrounding area.

When visiting Cape Verde, you can get your adrenaline pumping by trying several water-based activities, such as swimming and snorkeling.

When you're traveling in the greater region make time to check out the unique open-air markets. Don't forget to bring a camera and hat to fully enjoy time spent outdoors.

Traveling gives you the opportunity to discover a whole new array of authentic foods. Immerse yourself in the culinary traditions of Cape Verde by visiting the local restaurants.

The region's appreciation for cabbage and tuna is evident in some of the local dishes.

Try a few of the popular meals here, such as catchupa (slow boiled stew) or carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables).

Still have room in your tummy for dessert? Have a taste of papauya candy (sweet).

Purchase Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses), a well-known beverage in this area.

It will be extremely practical to take note of a couple of common phrases in Portuguese. One convenient term is És de onde? (where are you from?), which almost everyone will understand. Also, understanding Olá, which means hello, is going to be another handy tool to have in your arsenal.

Make sure to seek out the festivities generally held for Independence Day on the 5th of July.

When you are ready to say, "Até logo" to Santo Antao, you will leave with great memories and perhaps some souvenirs to take home.

17 miles (27 kilometers) to the southeast is Santo Antao's nearest major airport, Sao Pedro Airport.
