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.
On Maio try the 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 of the island.
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.
This island has some lovely secluded beaches and great water sports activities. Unlike other Cape Verde beach destinations like Sal and Boavista, which have developed rapidly over the years, things are moving slower on the tiny island of Maio.

The largest salt lake in the archipelago, Salina de Porto Ingles is worth a visit, if only to see the endless conical piles of salt. Nowadays the island doesn't produce the vast amounts it once did and the salt is only used by the locals.
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.
