Taxi tour in Santo Antão


Budget taxi tours around the island.

The driver isn’t a guide, but he will show you the most important spots of Santo Antão and stop here and there to enjoy the views.

One day and two day tours are possible. 

The first time you go to Santo Antão you will visit the east side:

At 08:00 in the morning you head from Mindelo’s port to Porto Novo in Santo Antão.

The tour goes from Porto Novo to Chã de Pedra and Corda, up to the former capital Ribeira Grande.  On the way back you visit Paúl and the stunning tropical Ribeira de Paúl.  You’ll see the villages Pombas and Janela with the lighthouse a bit further.  You don’t know where to look first: beautiful nature everywhere…

We get back to the dry side of Santo Antão down to Porto Novo where the driver says goodbye at the ferry boat that leaves at 17:00.  You have some time before the ferry leaves to buy some cheese, local fruits and vegetables from the ladies who sit next to the port.



Who has already visited the east side of Santo Antão before, can drive to the west side as well, with a little additional cost.







The driver has a comfortable minibus with a capacity of max. 10 persons.

You can ask to do the short walking track of 20 min. around the Cova crater.


Transport for one day – boat tickets, lunch and drinks not included – is private and for your group only.


You should buy your ferry tickets one day before in the ARMAS office at the Mindelo port at the price of €14 forward and back.

At 07:30 in the morning you step on the ferry to Porto Novo in Santo Antão.

The driver picks you up at 09:00 in Porto Novo and brings you back there at 16:30, half an hour before the ferry leaves for São Vicente.
