Go to Maruda city, far 3 hours from Belem going north. There in Maruda take the boat and get ready for an experience in an island where no cars and no infrastructure are waiting for you. Check your health first, then if you don´t need a hospital nearby neither a drugstore, then go. And enjoy the lonely beach of the... More

One of the best Island to know in Pará. You have to travel by car or bus and then take a small boat to get there but it's totally worth it! If you enjoy adventure and beaches you must get to know it there.

Imagine entering a car-free island just 45 min ashore from mainland Brazil. Horsedrawn "taxis". By high tide a small boat rows you to the start of a3.5 km long, white beach. Several small cafes serves you whatever you need. A choice of nice lodges close to the ocean. This is just what you need at vacation.

What amazing place! Once there we can feel the meaning of paradise. So quiet, so beautiful, that seems we are lost in time. No motor vehicles autorized, no tarmac, no pollution...what else do we need? Go and enjoy the nature without people around. No night life, luckly you may have a reggae night...all night!

Popular with some of the hippy crowd. Lovely beaches particularly if you go as far as you can and the beach becomes almost completely unspoilt.
