The most african island of Cape Verde

Santiago is a beautifull island with mountains, green valleys, banana-plantations, bays and beaches.

In the south of this biggest island of archipelago is Praia, the capital of Cape Verde.
Near Praia is situated Cidade Velha (=old capital) with old buildings/ruins from the 16th century.

In the north is the fairy-like bay of Tarrafal.

Waiting for the catch of the day

Early in teh morning the fishing-boats went out on the ocean.
At the end of the morning the sales-women are waitng on the beach for the catch of the day.

Beach life

After four o'clock in the afternoon and in the weekends ther is a lifely beach life.

Many Capeverdians visit the beach.
