Cape Verde holidays are without a doubt made more special with a visit to Maio, a beautiful desert island with lovely beaches fringed by turquoise seas. It is the least visited island of Cape Verde is still relatively unspoilt by tourism.
This means that Maio offers a great balance between lovely secluded beaches and more popular beaches with a wide range of water sports activities.

And make sure you take some time to visit the attractive town of Vila do Maio (the main town on the island) with its colourfully painted houses and narrow cobbled streets.
There is much to see and do when travelling around the islands of Cape Verde. On Maio, we are able to offer experiences which reflect the highlights of the island allowing you to step off the beaten track or indulge in some of the more active water sports on offer. Take a jeep safari around the island and discover the many beaches which are hidden from the road, or hire a quad and discover the sand dunes.
