Santiago Island Tour

2 reviews | 10 travellers
Marcos, the very attentive guide. He adapted to our requests. Despite this, we believe that if we returned we would do it on our own to be able to enjoy more time on the beach of Tarrafal.

Santiago Island Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Praia at 9 am, hitting the road and heading inland into Santiago island. We'll pass through Picos, where we'll stop to try locally made grogue, a white rum made from cane sugar. And of course, you'll see the Pico de Antonia - the tallest mountain on the island.

Once we arrive at Assomada, we'll explore its market, packed with fruit, vegetables and fresh fish. Then back on the road we'll cross the Serra de Malagueta Natural Park, on the road leading us to our next destination: Tarrafal.

In this quaint fishing village, we'll find the most idyllic of all the beaches in Cape Verde. But with a dark side: this palm-lined paradise was home to a concentration camp during the Second World War. We'll discover its history in the Museum of the Resistance.

Who's hungry? Now it's time to enjoy a typical lunch in a restaurant in Tarrafal. This meal will be made up of fried fish, stuffed tuna or grouper, and vegetables, salad, water, and coffee. And while you're tasting these dishes, you'll enjoy stunning views of the Atlantic.

Then we'll head back to Praia via stunning bays and deserted beaches. And at 5 pm we'll be back at your accommodation, with an unforgettable day in Santiago behind you.
