faja d'agua brava

Photo of the week – Fajã d’Agua, Brava

Fajã d’Agua is a tiny village on the northwestern coast of Brava. This little village is sandwiched between the mountains and the sea in what is one of the most beautiful bays in the whole of Cape Verde. There is an attractive walk to this little village, which takes you through fertile fields and deserted villages. In the past American whalers would use the bay for shelter and to pick up crew. As a result Brava has slightly more American influences than the other islands.
