Santiago Island Holidays

Large island offers scenic variety

Santiago is the largest of the Cape Verde Islands. Those looking for interesting scenery will find Santiago offers landscapes to match those on Santo Antao. Being a larger island, Santiago also offers a wide choice of excursions and contrasting landscapes, from fertile farmland with banana and papaya plantations to unspoilt lush mountains rising to 4000 feet. The predominantly rocky coastline is dotted with small sandy coves. For the island's outstanding beach, head for Tarrafal.
