“Paradise! Paradise! Paradise!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Access is controlled. You have to reserve this in advance.
They even ask you to remove sunblock to protect the wildlife.
I took the small trail. It's an easy 15min walk and you get to a natural pool with beautiful natural wildlife. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Baby sharks, lobsters, octopus, fishes of all kinds... Out of this world!

“Actually, is a natural pool...”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

You will pay a tax of conservation to visit this natural pool for one hour, in a company of a guide. To get there, is necessary to choose a trail: the long one lasts about 60 minutes, and the short one about 30. Don't forget to take you snorkel there! You will have to swim without to touch the ground (corals). It has a large amount of species, even sharks. Enjoy it!

“Swimming in a fish pond”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Going to this beach is an adventure, it was raining when I came, the trails is muddy and slippery, make sure you wear shoes, no havaianas. The beach has a special view...beautifull surrounded by hills. Snorkeling on the right side of the beach, I think it is more beautiful than the other side

“A fish nursery pool”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This place is very special and should be more protected. It's a natural pool where the fish breed and raise, clean waters, it's like diving in an aquarium. Despite the "control" of the Brazilian environment authorities, I think that people presence in the pool should not be allowed because people break the corals and do not respect the rules of not touching, not swimming, not wearing sun protector, etc. It's a paradise to be preserved.

“swimming in an aquarium”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

your really swimming inside an giant aquarium, where you can found many species of fishes including shark. i got a small movie of it. it is incredible when i watch it again and again. of course it is a small one but when you are swimming and realize that it is ONE SHARK you got an adrenaline shot...
For the kids, 4 and 7, it is very difficult for them to swim in this area. However the guide took care of them..
