brava coast

Photo of the week – Coast of Brava Island

The island of Brava, as well as being the smallest of the inhabited islands that make up the Cape Verde archipelago, is also the greenest. The clouds form over the mountain (Monte Fontainhas) for the entire year. The results are a variety of flora including almond trees, palm trees and oleander. Although a lovely island to visit if you like plants, the coastline is also very attractive, with dramatic rocks and attractive bays.
