  • Praia da Princesa-the immense Beach (14 km) and its sand dunes of white sands is the attraction of the island. Is 4 km north of the Centre and is a good option to walk, passing by Praia do Farol. The beach is separated from the island by a small canal, at low tide you can pass on foot. At high tide the crossing is made by small canoes, guided by natives of the island. On Princess, there are bars where you can find simple meals such as fried fish and shrimp Gumbo, snacks, beer, water, soda, juice and caipirinha. Princess lagoon-30 min of buggy, leaving Algodoal. According to legend, in full moon nights, a princess in white walks on the surface of fresh water of this pond. He who dares to look at her is seduced and compelled to follow it and end up drowned. Surrounded by white dunes, its waters are so dark that some compare to Coca-Cola.
