Sotavento islands (yellow)


The Sotavento islands (literally, the Leeward), is the southern island group of Cape Verdemarker archipelago.

There are four main islands: Bravamarker, Fogomarker and Santiagomarker are rocky and volcanic agricultural islands, with the longest histories of human inhabitance and densest populations in the Cape Verdes. Maio lies to the east and is a flat desert island whose economy was primarily based on salt, giving it more in common with Salmarker and Boa Vistamarker among the Barlavento.

The islets Ilhéu Grandemarker, Ilhéu de Cimamarker, and the minor islets Ilhéu do Rei, Ilhéu Sapado and Ilhéu Luís Carneiro make up the Ilhéus Secosmarker (or Ilhéus do Rombo) islets group north of Brava . The little Ilhéu de Santa Maria lays off Santiago.
