About the Local Area

This small island just east of Santiago is a beautiful addition to any island hopping holiday. Whilst the terrain is similar to that found on Boa Vista and Sal, many parts of the island have been reforested, giving it a lovely lush green vibe.

Vila de Maio is a mix of Portuguese and British colonial-style buildings, these colourful buildings spread up the hillside leading to a huge Baroque church. The island is home to lovely unspoilt beaches and is largely untouched by tourism, making it a great place to escape and unwind. 

Summer visitors may see some turtles on Maio's beaches and there are also some interesting birds that call the island home.



Visitors to the island will be able to experience wonderfully long and uninterrupted walks throughout the scenic landscapes, beaches and forests.


In the summer months tourists may be able to see some turtles on the beaches and some rare seabirds in the north of the island.
