Ponta Chao de Mongrade - Westernmost point of Africa included islands

Travelers challenge. Located among the “Barlovento” Islands, this island with its 779 km2 is the second largest land area, the third most populated and the northernmost and westernmost point of Cape Verde. Its western end, where you find Ponta Chao de Mongrade with the ruins of a lighthouse tower, is undoubtedly the point at which the African continent is finally delivered to the Atlantic Ocean. The small settlement of Monte Trigo is the nearest inhabited place and therefore the westernmost village of Africa. Porto Novo is the ferry port and the main town of the island from where it is a long and tough ride as well as a hike to get to this almost inaccessible Mostpoint. Are you ready for it?

What else is there
If you are interested in hiking, ecotourism and adventure, this is your island! The contrast of arid areas with orchards, the rugged landscape with mountain range that separates the northern and southern territory and populations and cultures that dot the valleys are very attractive. Not surprisingly tourism occupies a prominent place in the national economy and is typically from November to June on this island.

Notes
The access to this Mostpoint is restricted to the seaway, with daily connections from Mindelo on the neighboring island of São Vicente. Arriving at the lighthouse is an adventure by itself.
