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!

Not a beach for swimming as the cove is full of boats, but a great place to hang out / chill when you need a break from the adventure stuff. Our favourite hang out place was Cafe del Mar; sit in their beaded recliners at the water's edge with a chilled coffee or a beer ....

I loved the way the harbor looked on arrival but it was not a place I wanted to hang out. There are so many beautiful places to go on the island, I wouldn't spend too much time in the harbor area.

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.

The whole purpose of my trip to Rio de Janeiro, believe it or not, was to attend a concert at the Rock in Rio festival with my teenage son. I had just planned on renting an apartment on the mainland there in Rio and seeing some of the city and never even knew about this island until a friend of... More
