Panoramic Island Drive and Monte Verde

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €59,34 EUR / Adult
This leisurely excursion is tailored for those who want to experience the beauty of Sao Vicente without exerting too much effort. Your three-hour exploration begins with a drive to the summit of Monte Verde, the highest peak on the island. Sip a hot cup of tea or coffee as you take in bird's-eye views of the volcanic landscape and neighboring islands. Venture back down the mountain and continue to Catfish Bay, Mindelo's most popular beach resort. Marvel at the tumbling surf framed by surrounding peaks before making your way to the lovely sands of Praia Grande. Here, you'll stop for a tasting of island rum sipped while enjoying some of Sao Vicente's most beautiful scenery. On your way back to the pier, make a final stop in Rutxinha for a postcard-perfect photo opportunity of your Azamara cruise ship in the harbor – a great remembrance of your day on Sao Vicente.
  • Relax and soak up the views of Sao Vicente on a sightseeing drive narrated by a local guide.
  • Stand at the summit of Monte Verde for the best views overlooking the island.
  • Stop for a fantastic photo opportunity of your cruise ship from a viewpoint in Rutxinha.
