On our first day in Mindelo we took a taxi past the airport to the Foya Branca Resort. From there we started walking on a beautiful path in the cliffs above the sea towards the lighthouse of Ponta do Farol. After about 30 minutes - with the lighthouse not being far away anymore - we had to return due to... More

I visited this beach for half a day and enjoyed it. On a Monday morning, there was nobody in sight on the whole beach. The sand is very soft and a mixture of black sand and yellow sand.

From here you can walk to the lighthouse which... More

It is a long white sand beach. The sea is blue turquoise with waves that makes the swim more fun than the average swimming pool like beaches. every morning the fishermans unload the catch of the day, which is always fun to watch...one feels so close to nature!

This beach is like 20 minutes from Mindelo city center. It's very easy to get to and don't really need to stay at the resort hotel here. This seems to be a good beach for wind surfers. It was nice and quiet when we visited.
