The major city of Praia sits 120 miles southeast of Sao Nicolau.
Salt in your hair, a subtle glow and nature underneath your feet. A break just wouldn't be the same without these small joys. Laginha Beach, 55 miles to the northwest, and Sao Pedro Beach, 60 miles to the west, are a couple of relaxing places.
Replenish your mind and soul in the tranquil aura of Igreja Nossa Senhora do Rosário.
Do you think you've seen everything in Sao Nicolau? Don't forget Ribeira Brava.
Ribeira Brava and Branca Beach are just two of the many other places worth visiting while you're in the region. They're 5 miles and 9 miles away, respectively.
To get to Cultural Center of Mindelo, Monte Verde and Mount Verde, you need to travel northwest from Sao Nicolau for 50 miles to Baia das Gatas. Salamansa and Baía das Gatas are two more options that await you here.
Cape Verde has plenty of healthy ways to enjoy its picturesque landscapes. Those with a love of adventure should try out a bit of mountain climbing and hiking.
No trip could be considered complete without experiencing a bit of downtime. Shore fishing and sunbathing are two fun ways to relax while you're traveling around the region.
Head for the water and escape the heat with some swimming and snorkeling, just two of the exciting ways to get active here.
When the weather's just right, why not take some advice from the locals and spend the day at the region's open-air markets?
Discover the different aromas and flavors of Cape Verde by trying out its most popular food and drinks.
Nothing compares to local ingredients. You'll find that cabbage and tuna are popular choices here.
Your vacation wouldn't be complete if you don't taste catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables).
No dining experience can end until you've had dessert. Papauya candy (sweet) will surely do the job.
You're likely to see a few locals relishing over a glass of Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses), a well-known liquor here.
Engage with the locals by making the effort to speak some Portuguese. Não compreendoNão percebo means I don't understand. Quanto custa isto? (how much is this?) is another one to know.
National pride is at a peak on the 5th of July for Independence Day.
After you have spent your final escudos and it's time to pack up and check out, don't forget to say a final "Adeus" to Sao Nicolau.
You shouldn't worry about catching your flight. Just make sure you remember that the closest airport is 60 miles to the west.
Accommodation in Sao Nicolau
It's recommended that you book a place to stay as soon as your itinerary is confirmed, because Expedia's Sao Nicolau hotels page currently doesn't have a big range of accommodations.
