Sunset on Maio beach

This picture was taken on the main beach (Bitxe Rotxa) in Vila do Maio. Maio island has a lot of lovely beaches. This one is in the main town. It was take late afternoon as the sun was starting to go down over the pier and new port. From the island of Maio, on clear days the sun can be seen setting over the mountain of the island of Santiago. This often produces spectacular sunsets.
