Fogo and Change Islands Travel Guide

Fogo and Change Islands

Tales of the famous Fogo Island Inn have revived interest in this area for travelers from around the world. While Fogo Island has begun to reinvent itself with modern artist studios, arts-residency projects, and home-built economic engines, neighboring Change Islands has remained almost frozen in time. The barren landscape and remote location of these communities are both a draw and a barrier to tourism. Once ensconced, there seems to be no end to what you can experience. The natural landscape is continually stunning, and the people are warm, creative, and entrepreneurial. See the islands from the sea with Ketanja Boat Tours or come during the annual Great Fogo Island Punt Race for a more raucous and participatory boating experience. You can lose yourself in quiet and beauty in every cove and spit and feel like you're at the end of the earth.
