Brava

Description

Brava, Cape VerdeOne of the smaller islands, Brava - Wild - can only be reached by boat from Santiago and Fogo. The mountainous island is still relatively untouched by tourism, mainly because of the absence of beaches. The weathered and eroded appearance of this round island hides the fact that it is a stratovolcano, like neighbour Fogo, but older. This is the cycle of the earth, volcanoes rising and then quickly weathering away.

The interior of Brava is green and offers a good environment for agriculture, counting many exotic harvests. Small hamlets and scattered farms populate the surroundings of Monte Fontainhas, 976 m high. The coastal region is rugged and arid.

Brava lags behind in comparison with Fogo or Santo Antão on the subject of tourism. The advantage of all this is that you will find a unique and quiet island with good hiking options.
