Location

Praia Branca, Tarrafal de Sao Nicolau, Cape Verde

Praia Branca is a bucolic village with its narrow streets, reminiscent of some villages in central Portugal and Italy. It was in this atmosphere that was born the most famous Morna, Sodade, internationally known in the voice of the eternal muse Cezaria Évora.
Natural beauty - The Farinha de Pau - Eco Project is located just 20 minutes from one of the 7 wonders of Cape Verde, the Carberinho. But not only, with a short walk you can reach the Boca Ribeira, an area by the sea, with a fabulous scenario. On the left side, you have a incredible view the back of the Praia Branca Peak, with its huge cliffs, and a sandy beach at the base, with access only by the sea. And in the right side, with a light walk, we arrive at a delightful natural pool known as Rotxa Furód (Pierced Rock), where in front of the pool, there is a rock which prevents the waves arrive, but she has a hole through which only pass the water movements generated by the waves. This creates a fun Inside the pool movement, where you can float and let the movement take us freely. Around the pool, the black sand provides a perfect place to make a picnic and spend a good time there. More forward, you will find the seven lagoons. Are small natural lagoons, which linked together, they create a nursery for small fish and other animals. Pass some time there with a diving goggles is a delightful hobby, it can be observed numerous coral, colorful fish, shrimp and other animals who frequent these pools. Praia Branca Peak is another great activity to do. Climb the Praia Branca Peak and watch all area from the top is fantastic, and you can not miss this opportunity. Behind the Farinha de Pau is a beautiful mountain, which you can practice climbing, or simply walk through the trees, and have a picnic in their shadows.
