From these airports depart regular domestic flights that make the connection with the other islands of the archipelago. To reach Santo Antão, the second largest and one of the most beautiful in Cape Verde, you must first disembark in Mindelo, São Vicente, the second largest city in the country. From there, it is a beautiful crossing of about 60 minutes of calm and blue sea to arrive at the port of Porto Novo on the island of Santo Antão.
The hours of the ships are variable, but usually depart from Mindelo in the morning at 7am or 8am and in the afternoon at 2pm or 3pm. The cost of the trip is 800 CVE (7.26 EUR).
