Island of Maio
Maio is an island of space, tranquility and hospitality. The beaches are endless and virtually untouched, with beautiful white sand and crystal clear, warm waters. Due to its raw natural landscape, turtles choose the beaches of Maio to lay their eggs – influencing a culture of preservation among the locals for the species and for the island. Fishing villages produce an abundance of seafood variety from tuna to coral fish. The island of Maio is the most eastern of the Leeward (Sotavento) group of the archipelago to the east of Santiago and south of Boavista.
