Most people when they arrive at the ferry port on the island of Santo Antão in Cape Verde either drive to the Cova Crater to start their walk into the Paul Valley, or turn right and drive along the coast to Ponta do Sol. Those who turn left, only do so because they either want to climb the island’s highest peak Tope de Coroa or want to go to the end of the world.  If you do turn left, road that you’ll get some of the best views of neighbouring island Sao Vicente.
