You'll get a great view from atop the Lighthouse of the River and the Ocean so you can see the layout of where you are. This was one of the stop overs on our way to Atins.

Worth the effort of subor (and the effort is not so much). It has views of river, sea, sands of sheets and forest. It allows you to understand how the whole area is and what makes it different from the rest of Brazil.

Visit the light house, climb up and take a look of the area. It is amazing, and gives you a great overview

Short stop to climb the lighthouse built in 1906. Climb the 160 steps to the top for a wonderful view. The building is not used as a lighthouse anymore.

The lighthouse has an amazing view - but the community nearby also has its attractions: my attention was drawn by the icecream shop and the bar near the river - which has different types of cachaças to sell.

For us this was part of a day tour. It was nice to see but not really a place where you really need to go especially for a lighthouse: there are many places like this in the world...

Decent view of up to 85 nautical miles. The lighthouse is 35m high and there is no elevator, so be ready for a small hike. They have delicious cachaca at the port in the town.
