ISLAND FEVER: LARGEST CITIES ON DISTANT SMALL ISLANDS
Here are the largest cities on islands smaller than 1000 square miles and further than 500 miles from any continent or island larger than 1000 square miles. Note that while Mindelo, Cape Verde is on the list, Praia, Cape Verde, which is a larger city is not, since it is within 500 miles of the African coast (though Mindelo is just beyond that distance).
