Maio

This small island is the perfect escape to relax for a day. 
Maio offers deserted remote white sandy beaches and several good restaurants which make it an attractive place to visit.
Situated between Santiago and Boa Vista islands, it has a mostly flat landscape, desolate brown desert, and patches of acacia forest.
Turtles can be seen nesting during the summer months and also some interesting birds can be spotted off the north of the island at Ilheu Laje Branca.
