Photo Gallery

The 15 x 25 km volcanic island of Sao Vicente (right) lies across a channel SE of the larger Santo Antao island. The large circular embayment on the left side of the island (in line with the linear airport) is formed by a caldera on the NW coast that is breached by the sea and forms the setting for the port of Mindelo, the island's largest village. Mafic Holocene lavas cover prominent peninsulas on the NE (top) and eastern (upper right) sides bracketing the smooth-shored bay.
