    The jetty can not be used. Maybe it is because it is under repair. Police very helpful. Ambulance for covid test was there in 30 minutes. Safe place! However with the dingy to the beach can be a wet experience. Some Nice restaurants and bikes for rent. We liked this very relaxed and safe island

    A month of confinement in Maio brought us a lot: the kindness of its inhabitants as well as a great sweetness of life. The bottom is composed of good sand especially in the 6 meters to 100 m of the dike. Forget the arrival in the annex on the beach, it's rock and roll. On the dike, a metal ladder supplemented with a rope ladder is safer. You can moor the stern to a small dead body. The port warden (Mr. Silva) speaks perfect French, he is always ready to help.

    Un mois de confinement à Maio nous a apporté beaucoup : la gentillesse de ses habitants ainsi qu'une grande douceur de vie. Le fond est composé de sable de bonne tenue surtout dans les 6 mètres à 100 m de la digue. Oubliez l'arrivée en annexe sur la plage, c'est rock and roll. Sur la digue, une échelle métallique complétée d'une échelle de corde est plus sure. Vous pouvez amarrer l'arrière à un petit corps mort. Le gardien du port (monsieur Silva ) parle parfaitement français, il est toujours disposer à rendre service.

    Mooring by 10m in sand ... good behavior ... beautiful white sand beach. A little rouleur Moor the annex preferably on the right side of the beach, on the rocky peak where are all the fishing boats ... lanyards to fix the mooring of the annex and let drift .. a staircase then allows to climb. The arrival on the beach can be tricky due to the rollers. Beautiful village in its historical part with warm welcome. New constructions ruin the unity of the whole. Worth the detour.
