Like Boavista, Maio is a quiet and tranquil island, almost the place that time forgot.  Wind erosion has resulted in very little evidence of the island's volcanic past except for Monte Penoso with an altitude of 436m.  The island is arid with hardly any irrigated land, though oddly, it does have the largest forest park in Cape Verde.  Similar in size to Sal, measuring approximately 24kms by 16kms at its longest and widest points, virtually the entire coastline is made up of beautiful, deserted beaches of golden sand, ideal for the water enthusiast.  These beaches are also a favourite for turtles in which to lay their eggs.  The capital, Vila Do Maio, with its large white baroque church, is a small town, which runs alongside one of the longest beaches in the archipelago.  Many investors believe that the beauty of Maio will draw tourists, willing to make a small additional flight of ten minutes, from Santiago.
