The Islands

We are located on São Vicente and use the harbour at Mindelo. This island is part of the northern group of islands in the Cape Verdes. It was a British refuelling port for years, and is often visited by marine forces. The islands are all of volcanic origin, and apart from the island Fogu, not active as such.

The island São Vicente has an area of 220 km2 and a population of 70.000. The island is relative flat i.e. only 800 meters at its peak.

The airstrip on the island is under rebuilding, to become an international airport with direct flights to and from Europe.
