Monte Verde, Mindelo

4.1
Monte Verde, the tallest mountain on the island of Sao Vicente, remains part of a natural park. Although locals once grew green beans and corn on these slopes, today the mountain features limited vegetation, its reddish-brown look making for great photo opps. Standing 750 m (2,460 ft) tall, the mountain provides a view of the entire island, which looks especially photogenic on sunny days.

  • Ideal for lovers of nature and hiking (accessible also by car) IMPOSSIBLE to miss the view offered by this magnificent Mount green.

  • If you're on sao vincente are this is one of the few highlights in terms of landscape. We are together with a guide in 1 day toured around the island. The top of the monte verde was sitting in the clouds making the view a little less. But it was still worth it. Take a jacket because it's fresh above!

  • We have done a tour in which we also visited the peak. We are driven to the top in a 4 x 4 What is recommended is because the road up to it best style is and the pavement sometimes don't look too good. It was a very nice ride with fantastic views. Unfortunately, the clouds just to us when we reached the top what here according to our guide so often is. This was the view no longer really well. We have seen and smelled delicious herbs that grow here. Tip take a thermos deer water so you can pull this herbal tea, we had not but with the herbs growing there seems to me this delicious.

  • Monte Verde is a must see if you happen to be in St.Vicente! It genuinely deserves more exposure. The view due to difference in altitudes is simply amazing.
  • An excellent lookout point, where we can have a great view of St. Vincent, with a climate that varies or changes in a few moments. Spectacular.
