Maio is the perfect ‘away from it all’ destination. You can expect to find sleepy towns with colourful little houses, hilly landscapes, limestone valleys, acacia forests and coconut palms and tranquility in abundance. There are long stretches of perfect white sandy beaches, warm clear waters with very little commercialism and the friendliest locals anywhere in Cape Verde.

If you want to get away from it all this is the place for you…
