  • The village is small has a restricted trade and little varied, no seats, no pharmacy or supermarket, there's small sales and some cafes and restaurants ranging from reasonable and great. the trail to the deserted beach is an attraction as well as the beach. Very good!!!

  • No words to describe the experience of visiting the island. I went by boat from Guaraqueçaba and only that path itself already worth it. Island with the charm of very simple construction, several guesthouses well accessible and campsites. Do the 4 km track on the inside of the island and reach the deserted beach is a sensational experience.
