Holidays in Sao Nicolau

You'll find one of Cape Verde's greatest cities several hours from Sao Nicolau. Praia is situated 120 miles to the southeast.

Put aside some time for relaxing on the shore and collecting delicate shells at Laginha Beach or Sao Pedro Beach.

Whether you want to learn about the spiritual side of the region or just relax in the calming atmosphere, Igreja Nossa Senhora do Rosário is the place to go.

Don't be alarmed if you meet a number of like-minded travellers at Ribeira Brava.

Keen to check out Presidential Palace, Mercado Municipal and the Cultural Center of Mindelo? They're all not far from Sao Vicente, 55 miles to the west. Mindelo Marina and Pont d'Agua are also conveniently close and should be included in your travel plans.

Looking for something a bit more involved? For a lively and memorable adventure over the region's landscapes, sign yourself up for some mountain climbing or hiking.

If your littlest travellers need to get away from sightseeing for a while, why not take them out for a leisurely day of shore fishing or sunbathing?

Step off terra firma and take in Cape Verde from a different angle. With a collection of exciting activities like swimming and snorkeling, it's a great playground for water enthusiasts.

Want a bit of fresh air? Plan a visit to one of the surrounding area's open-air markets.

Eating is among life's greatest pleasures, and since you're here, we guess you think travel is too. Combine your fondness for both by venturing out and sampling the local cuisine at various restaurants, cafés and bars across town.

Wondering about some of the surprises that'll land on your dinner plate? There's a high chance they'll include cabbage, tuna or maybe even both.

You don't need to agonise over the menu while in Sao Nicolau. Just dive straight in and taste some of the region's most well-known dishes, such as catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables).

Papauya candy (sweet) is a dessert that sums up this place in just one bite. Order up a serving and see how long it takes you to come back for more!

Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses) is the number one spirit for many locals in Cape Verde. Order up a shot or two to really kick off the party!

Talk to any avid traveller and they'll tell you that the simplest way to enrich your time away is to memorise a few of the local phrases. "Desculpa!" can be translated as "sorry". Another one to keep in mind is "Muito agradecidos", meaning "thank you".

If you have the good luck to be in Sao Nicolau on the 5th of July, get ready to let your hair down! Independence Day see many locals celebrating this auspicious date.

"Até logo" doesn't have to mean farewell for good. Why not save a few Cape Verdean escudos for when you return?

With some planning, getting to Sao Pedro Airport (VXE), the closest airport, won't be too difficult. It's some 60 miles west of the centre of Sao Nicolau.
