Maio is one of the least visited islands in Cape Verde, but it has so much to offer. There are long sandy beaches, cliffs and rocks, pretty villages and friendly people. Many visitors don’t explore further than Vila do Maio (Porto Inglês), the main town. However a guided tour of the island will show you lovely deserted beaches such as this one, Praia Gonçalo, on the north east coast. There are plenty of small villages bars to stop at for refreshment and the trip makes for a great day out.
