Description
Tarrafal de Monte Trigo lies between the mountains and the sea on the South West of the island of Santo Antão, protected from the predominant winds from the North West. Blessed with its own water source which, in the past, supplied drinking water to the nearby island of Sao Vicente via small steam boats belonging to the Ferro company. 

It was this Ferro family who founded Tarrafal de Monte Trigo. Tarrafal is a small village made up of fishermen and farmers which time forgot until the 90s due to its difficult access. In Tarrafal there is a small school, a health centre, a few bars and small shops, daily transport to Porto Novo, and telephone and electricity for a few hours each day.

Tarrafal is the perfect location if you wish to spend time with easy going, welcoming people enjoying a warm microclimate all year round; enjoying its bay, its beach and some of nature’s own treats: turtles lay eggs on the beach in the summer and the bay is on the migratory route of tuna, whales, dolphins and birds.
