Paul Tal, Santo Antao

5.0
#2 of 9 in Things to do in Santo Antao
Hike through the pristine mountainous landscape of Paul Tal, carved out by the Ribeira do Paul. This 8 km (5 mi) long valley starts at the picturesque village of Pombas and has abundant mango, passion fruit, bananas, and sugarcane fields, making it one of the most important agricultural areas on the islands and the greenest valley on Cape Verde. Follow an easy trail along terraced slopes and ridges ascending towards a crater, and then go down again through the undulating terrain. Along the way, many vantage points provide perfect spots to rest and take in the jagged peaks and river below. You can see the entire valley from the highest point on the trail.

  • Led by a taxi at the end of the road, we went down the Valley of Paul and Figueral through coffee trees, guava trees, bread and many other species, trees through a few villages where the inhabitants are showing a lot of kindness, even if the barrier of the language limits the exchanges

  • We stayed 3 days in this valley that is simply sublime. However he must love to walk because there is to do. We had a guide the first day to get to the crater of Cova. It was very rewarding because it made us discover all plants of the region that Aboriginal people cultivate and key impressive the number of variety there is.
