The Beaches

There is private access to a small-secluded sandy beach accessible by villa owners down steps built into the cliff. The steps to this beach are on the other side of the pool that can be seen from the bedroom window, about fifty meters from the villa. On the other side of the small beach is the town of Vila Do Maio. A short walk down through the town brings you out on the main street overlooking the long white sandy main beach. Here you will find a few bars and restaurants. It’s the place the fishermen bring in their catch and where the locals like to hang out. About 12 min in the other direction is Ponta Pretta beach. It runs many kilometers south without any sign of civilization.

Please note: At certain times of the year the waves in Cape Verde can be quite large and this can make bathing in the sea challenging. However this doesn't normally last more than a day or two. Sometimes under these conditions the sand can shift quite dramatically. The small beach close to the villa usually has less sand June to November (occasionally none) and much more sand December to May. Villa Do Maio main beach (8 min) and Ponta Pretta beach (12 min) always have sand.

Climate & Weather

The climate is tropical and dry. The average daytime temperature remains around 25°C and whilst there are highs and lows due to the influence from the Ocean, the changes do not exceed 10°C (Min 15°C Max 35°C) . The sea temperature is between 23°C in February and March up to 27°C in September and October (several degrees warmer than the Canaries). The north east trade winds are at their strongest between January & April. (This is why Cape Verde is one of the worlds top kite surfing destinations). The rest of the year the wind is variable from calm to moderate. Rainfall is very rare, it doesn't normally rain at all between November & August. From mid August to mid October it is hot, humid with the occasional heavy shower.

Description of Maio Island

The terrain around Maio is made up of forests in the northern part and dry desert dominating the rest of the area around the south. The mountains including a view of Monte Batalha dominates the Northwest. In the south-west there is a large salt flat where you can find interesting flora & fauna, locals still gather salt here today. There are long stretches of perfect white sandy beaches, quiet towns, warm clear waters with very little commercialism and friendliest locals in anywhere in Cape Verde.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My name is Philip, that is me on the left :o) It is our aim to make your holiday as close to perfect as possible. We are passionate about Cape Verde, its people and its potential. If you haven’t been before, you must! If you have been, we are confident we can show you more. Cape Verde is an amazingly diverse holiday destination. Please ask any questions you like…

Why Cascabulho:
The reason we decided to buy a house on the island of Maio is because it is the perfect ‘away from it all’ destination. It has sleepy towns with colorful little houses, hilly landscapes, limestone valleys, acacia forests and coconut palms and tranquility in abundance. There are long stretches of perfect white sandy beaches, warm clear waters with very little commercialism and the friendliest locals anywhere in Cape Verde.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The unique benefits include a private garden with lovely views across the ocean. During much of the year you can see whales and flying fish from the terrace. It is completely quiet with no cars allowed, just the sound of the waves. If you want to take a swim the pool is only 10m away. It too had spectacular views, you can sit by the pool and watch the sun set over the neighbouring island of Santiago.
