Welcome to vista verde tours – the travel expert of Cape Verde!

We are very proud of being able to launch our new website despite these unprecedented and difficult times.
It is of high importance to us as we truly believe that tourism is a key to the successful future of this country.
More than ever we – together with all our local service partners – pursue the philosophy of sustainable tourism.
Since the beginning of the crisis we have supported many families and local people thanks to our donation event.
Now we are going to focus on establishing the necessary hygienic standards, together with our service partners, in preparation for our first visitors.

SANTA LUZIA - DESERTED AND LONELY

The deserted island of mystical and magical legends


This uninhabited island of 35 square metres is located between São Vicente and São Nicolau. During the 19th century it had mostly been used for farming. An extremely arid climate combined with the lack of any natural water resource and only sparse vegetation has resulted in Santa Luzia never being colonised properly.

Nowadays the island serves as a breeding ground for many endemic bird species, and for this reason it is a protected reserve. At the moment only local fishermen are allowed to enter the surrounding water (sailing boats and yachts need special permission) but there is a long-term vision to establish tourism on the island in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
