Calhau

About Calhau

The developing tourist village of Calhau is located in the Cape Verde Island of Sao Vicente.  Mindelo is Cape Verde's cultural capital and has, by far, the most attractive city centre in the Cape Verde Islands.  The charming colonial buildings, cobbled streets, numerous cafes, restaurants and great nightlife make Mindelo a great place to visit.  As the educational and cultural centre of the Islands, Mindelo has produced many of the Islands artistic and political gures.  Perhaps the most famous Cape Verdean, Cesaria Evora (Cape Verde's Grammy winning singer) was born and raised here adding to Mindel's reputation as the vibrant and traditional capital of Cape Verde.

The capital houses the majority of the total 70,000 population, being the second largest population of all the Islands.  It is predicted, Sal Vicente will develop into an exclusive holiday Island with massive investment potential.

Moving to the Eastern side of the Island is where you will find Calhau the location for Vila Cretcheu, 20 minutes from the airport and 1t minutes from Mindelo.
