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 the lovely secluded beaches of Maio offer a great counterpoint to those of Sal and Boavista – which are also great beaches but are much busier, 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. 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. Take a jeep safari around the island and discover the many beaches which are hidden from the road, and discover the sand dunes.
Hotel options are somewhat limited on Maio, however there are a few small guest houses and self-catering apartments and the standard of these places are surprisingly good
