Discover the magnificent island of 

Santo Antão 


Tienne Del Mar cooperates with an organization which organizes excursions. Among other things, they organize day trips that allow you to admire unusual places and picturesque buggy views. At any time during your journey, you are free to drive yourself or you can ask the guide to take the wheel.

We offer several mapped out routes that you can take from the hotel or from the port.

Cova de Paul

Cova is a fertile crater and walking down to cidade das Pombas, you'll be constantly overwhelmed by the breathtaking view. Along the way you walk past coffee plants, banana, mango, and avocado trees.  


A short hike with great views. From the top of Xôxô village, you have an amazing view of Ribeira grande. When walking down, just after leaving Xôxô you pass an amazing waterfall. 

Ribeira da Torre

Ribeira da Torre is a stream in the northeastern part of the island of Santo Antão. Its source is in the mountains north of the Cova crater.When you arrive in Ribeira de Torre, you reach the Eastern Plateau in the beginning. at an altitude of more than 1200 metres.  

Pico da Cruz

Pico Da Cruz is the second highest mountain on the island, with an altitude of 1,500 metres, you will be impressed by the great altitude. The flora is dominated by coniferous trees. At night there is a possible precipitation. This ensures that there is a wide variety of plants, which makes the region one of the most beautiful of the island. 

Chã de Igreja

 This walk of about 6 hours is an absolute must in Santo Antao.  It runs along the northeast coast and crosses several villages that offer beautiful sights on sometimes unpaved roads.  The view of the valleys and cliffs is among the most impressive of the Island.  His level of difficulty is moderate à difficult.


 The walk from Corda to Coculi provides views of pristine valleys and the blue ocean as a backdrop that will surely leave you speechless for a few moments.  It is a brisk walk of 6 to 7 hours that is worthwhile.  You will see several villages on  your path.Once you arrive in Coculi, you will be surrounded by a large number of palm trees.


If you are looking for relaxation after a few days of walking, you can always take a dip in the natural baths of Sinagoga. It's located between Paùl and Ribeira Grande.  After bathing it is possible to have a snack and drink there at "Oasis".


 If you're not easily seasick and would like to do something very original, you definitely should go fishing. While sitting in a boat that tilts from left to right, you can catch your own fish. Afterwards everybody bakes their fish on the barbecue. Act and feel like a real Capeverdean local.

Scuba diving & canyoning

In Tarrafal, on the other side of the island, or in Porto Novo (where the ferry arrives)  you can make great diving trips, where you can see Manta’s and turtles. Snorkeling is also an option.
