Standing like a natural balcony overlooking the island, Maido offers some of the best panoramic views over its west coast and the Mafate cirque, a remote and isolated caldera. The forest trail running up the slope is accessible by car, but the summit of this volcanic peak--sitting 2,200 m (7,218 ft) above sea level--can be reached only on foot. Along the way through the forest of tamarind trees, you will come across many popular picnic spots. Go early in the morning if you want to avoid the clouds that might obstruct the view. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Maido and many more Saint-Paul attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Saint-Paul trip itinerary builder .
