Ocean Ports of Call

Brava Island - Cape Verde Islands Highlights:
Secret Island, Furna, Vila Nova Sintra and Fajã de Agua
Brava is one of the islands of the mountainous volcanic Cape Verde Islands. Brava ( Portuguese for "wild") is the smallest inhabited island, but at the same time the greenest, of Cape Verde, in the Sotavento group. Brava is often referred to as the ‘Secret Island' as it is sometimes mist shrouded and the humid conditions produce wonderful conditions for the flora. It is also one of the most mountainous of the islands with soaring peaks and deep valleys.

First settled in the 1540s, its population grew after Mount Fogo on neighbouring Fogo erupted in 1675. Its main industry was whaling, but the island is now primarily agricultural. The island's main town is Vila Nova Sintra and five villages lie north of the mountaintop, including Furna (which has a port), Vila Nova Sintra and Fajã de Agua. In the south is Nova Sintra do Monte.
