    Sundays and Tuesdays are the best days to visit the unknown paradise of Cape Verde. The island of Maio has only 269 km² and it is the flattest island on Cape Verde. Starting from your hotel in the City of Praia, straight to the harbour, the ferry will leave at 7 am for a two hours trip until arriving on the island of Maio. The colonization of the island stems from the exploitation of salt, which has been exported to several countries like Brazil for example, an activity that continued until the 19th century. At the same time, agriculture and grazing have been maintained. With a local guide, you will explore the historic center of Porto Inglês and its Salinas, São José Fortress, built in the 18th century to protect the island from pirate attacks, Sobrados, Our Lady of Grace Church, agricultural and fishing areas.
