Islands

The islands of the Cape Verde archipelago are made up of two groups: the islands of Barlavento (meaning “from where the wind blows”) and the islands of Sotavento (“where the wind blows away”). Their names reflect the positions of the islands relative to the dominant winds (trade winds) that blow from the northeast. The islands of Barlavento (Santo Antão, S. Vicente, Santa Luzia, S. Nicolau, Sal and Boa Vista), are further north, and the islands of Sotavento (Maio, Santiago, Fogo and Brava), are further south.
