Porto Novo

is the first city on the island and likely to become a first class tourist resort in the near future.

Three quarters of the island, adored by mountaineers, hikers and bikers, are easily reached from the south-coast, where Porto Novo is located, where ferries come in every day.

Road connections allow to discover the eastern part of the planalto with its forests around Pico da Cruz.

The central highlands show a unique fauna from the crater of Paúl to Lagoa and further up to Maroços and Figueiras.

The highest of the mountains, the Tope de Coroa is a silent volcano with litte but very interesting endemic vegetation, rare birds, and stunning vulcanic desert landscapes. Hardly any hiker made its way to these places because of lack of touristic infrastructure in the Porto Novo District. The green valleys of Tarrafal de Monte Trigo, Ribeira da Cruz, Martiene, Alto Mira und Ribeira das Patas, all of them far away from the better known districts of Ribeira Grande and Porto Novo are next to Porto Novo.

Since the Four Star Hotel Resort-Hotel Santo Antão opended its doors at the waterfront of Porto Novo, a new dynamic moves the district's touristic development.
