Trip Planner Africa  /  Cape Verde  /  Maio
Immerse yourself in island life with a visit to Maio, the easternmost island of the Sotavento cluster. Tranquility marks the atmosphere here, as the island offers untouched beaches, lagoons, limestone valleys, and giant coconut palms. Because the island measures only 31 km (19.3 mi) in length, most areas on the island can be covered on foot, allowing you to truly soak up the scenery. If you want to venture further on your Maio vacation, take a jeep safari around the island's large woodland area and salt marshes, keeping an eye out for exotic birdlife. Maio is in Cape Verde.
