One of the nine islands of Cape Verde, Fogo encompasses a beautiful, wind-swept landscape. The centerpiece is Pico do Fogo, the highest point in Cape Verde and an active volcano. The charming main town of Sao Felipe feels more European than West African, with cobblestone streets and Portuguese-influenced architecture. Fogo is also the only island in Cape Verde that produces its own coffee beans and wine, marked by large grapes leading up to Pico do Fogo and tasty wine in the local villa. Only a three-hour ferry ride from the capital of Praia, Fogo is a unique place worth experiencing.Recommended for:
