Still little affected by tourism, São Nicolau distinguishes itself from the other islands of the archipelago by its craggy and jagged landscapes. Black volcanic sand beaches, ochre earth carved by nature, jagged mountains and green valleys... Monte Gordo Natural Park offers some of the most beautiful Cape Verdean hikes. Meanwhile, visitors praise the hospitality extended by the locals, mostly fishermen and farmers rooted in their land and their traditions.
