Monte Verde, Mindelo

4.2
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.

  • Arriving on San Vicente, it's nice to get take some fresh out of the city of Mindelo. The road that rises from the intersection with Baia das Gatas (it seems) is very pretty, paved, and can be done on foot. Lovely views in amount but not terrible with forest of antennas and many top often in the clouds...

  • Summit very accessible by road either by car or on foot. Military compound at the top but possibility to enjoy the view by the trail.

  • 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.
  • A brilliant vantage point!

  • 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.
