Boats on the beach, Maio, Cape Verde

Photo of the week – Boats on the beach on Maio

The main beach (Bitxe Rotxa) in Vila do Maio is a lovely place to enjoy the sun and sea, with bars on the beach where you can eat and drink. The colourful boats are evidence of one of the main trades, namely fishing. Fresh fish can be purchased every day.

This attractive staircase is worth stopping to admire. Many houses do not have gardens and this person has made the most of the external space that they have.
