Tales from the island of Maio - Cape Verde

Some information on the island of Maio by those that have been there............

Maio is worth a visit - by Mark Latham

Cheryl Thomas - Wednesday, January 12, 2011
The island of Maio (Ilha do Maio) is located east of Santiago, which is part of the group of islands called the 'Sotavento', which forms the eastern end of the Cape Verde archipelago. Maio looks deserted, flat and barren. Its landscape is extremely similar to the near neighbour of Boa Vista. Long beautiful deserted beaches, uncrowded and extensive stretches of unspoilt white sandy beaches trimmed with coconut palms and exotic flora. History states that the island was discovered on the 1st of May 1460, and it was named after the feast of the Maias that also gave rise to the name of the month “Maio” (May) on the calendar.
