Full description
Spend a day on the water immersing yourself in the beautiful natural world of Cape Verde. After pickup from your hotel, you'll depart for the west of the island. On the way, take photo stops at the lovely towns of São Domingos and Assomada, before arriving at the small bay of Ribeira da Barca Village. First, enjoy a 25-minute trip on board a traditional fishing boat and take stunning photos of the crust formed by the volcanic eruption during the formation of the island. Arrive at Pilon de Achata Leite and admire one of the Cape's 7 Wonders, the spectacular rare rocks surrounded by small crabs. Next, head to Àguas Belas (which means "beautiful waters") and if the sea isn't too rough, go swimming and snorkeling inside its caves. Get to know the local marinee life while your staff prepares a delicious barbecue on the beach. Relax on the black-sand beach as you enjoy your meal. After lunch, head back to Ribeira da Barca and conclude your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

A completely successful tour, everything went well. The guides were competent and friendly, the boat trip very original (4 men crew plus both of us), the barbecue (tuna + salad) very tasty and authentic. The drive between the rocks and caves was an experience. Gladly again.
