Monte Curral is a nice place in the middle of Espargos. You can go next to the wall and take pictures of the whole city. Be careful and don't go there with flipflops, the terrain can be slippery.

This provides a great view point of the central Sal, next the island capital. A short steep road goes to the point.

If you have hired a car and want to get a view over a large part of the island of Sal then you can drive up a steep winding road in Espargos to the top of this volcanic knoll. It's a bit rough in parts...More

Steep climb to the hill overlooking Espargos. Good place to get a view of Sal generally , the city and the shanty towns

You can see here what the real Cape Verde is like. Poor and Marsh-like. On the other hand it is worth a visit!

With a quad we reached the top of the mountain within a few minutes but by foot it shouldn't also take too long. Halfway there is some graffiti and at the top there is a small shop and a view over Espargos. The capital Espargos...More

From here you have a good view of the City. Nice to see good houses on one site but to are the poor people on the other site.

This is the highest point in Espargos (the main city of Sal), you will find a nice view of all the island the city. The road is a little narrow, so you should make sure that there isn't anyone coming on the opposite direction.
