You come here with the island tour and you can see the whole of Sal from the top. If you have a good guide they give info about the different parts of the island you can see. The drive up is hairpin and not good...More

Monte Curral is a nice place in the middle of Espargos. You can go next to the wall and take pictures of the whole city. Be careful and don't go there with flipflops, the terrain can be slippery.

Note really an 'attraction' more a curiosity on the way through. Communications hub overlooking Espargos. Narrow alpine style road up to the top, but as you'll likely be going there on an 'island trip' it shouldn't be an issue. Good views of the real world...More

You can see here what the real Cape Verde is like. Poor and Marsh-like. On the other hand it is worth a visit!
