Mindelo (Port Code:CVMIN) is a port city in the northern part of the island of São Vicente in Cape Verde. From the beginning of the 20th century the port of Mindelo lost its importance for transatlantic navigation. Causes for this were the shift from coal to oil as fuel for ships, the rise of competing ports like Dakar and the Canary Islands and the lack of investment in port infrastructure.
The port of Mindelo has natural deep waters, giving it a huge advantage compared to other harbours in the country. Because of its strategic location, the port of Mindelo continues to be an important one, both for business and leisure. Ships and yaughts on route from Europe to South America stop in Mindelo for stock, preparation and fuel. A lot of cargo comes through the port of Mindelo. Not only are a lot of items sold in the supermarkets imported, the many Cape Verdeans living abroad send various items to the country for personal use and to support family.
