It is a paradise! You can have dinner, relax, drink beer or nice capirinha at the many bars and restaurants of the village with tables located on the beach with samba or forro played by locals...The view is stunning and the atmosphere is amazing. I will come back in the future!

Nervous center of the island, from where most of the tracks and there is greater availability of accommodations, restaurants and boats for tours. A simple fisherman village, no frills, with friendly and helpful residents, a singular energy and an amzing mountain and sea landscape.
