“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

It is a brilliant place to go but only at sunny weather, best time to try is around 2 pm. Do not be afraid of the dogs, they are friendly

“On top of the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

The road from Mindelo to the summit of Monte Verde is cobbled and narrow, snaking its way up the mountainside. If you are afraid of heights the drop is a little intimidating especially when you see the next curve in the road ahead and the erosion that has taken place over time. However, the bumpy ride is well worth it and we were rewarded with breathtaking (and windy) views over Mindelo, the craggy volcanic peaks in the distance and the seascape in all directions. Somehow the ride back down the mountain seemed faster and safer, but then our insecurities had been left behind.
