  • I went to the site with friends to meet and I found the place very nice. The island is a place where you can see a beautiful sunset and also bathe in the waters of the São Francisco River.

  • Massangano island is a beautiful place. A spectacular sunset on the tip of the island, where you can enjoy a delicious River bath in the waters of San Francisco. Some people camping over there. Looks like a good place for camping, as it has many trees. But people sometimes leave the trash of camping there, which is sad. The local community is quiet, simple, extremely nice and traditional. Great place to spend the day.

  • The mystical atmosphere of the island and the friendliness of its residents without a doubt make massangano a walk indispensable in petrolina. Walk around the village and talk to your friendly locals to enter a parallel world:) Beyond the village the island has beautiful beaches.

Where to stay in Petrolina

Much of Petrolina’s activity centers around the snaking Sao Francisco River, and the majority of the city’s hotels can be found here. These vary in quality but offer easy access to restaurants, bars, and stores as well as the city of Juazeiro, which sits just across the bridge. Those who want to enjoy the youthful buzz and affordable eateries that the University provides should look for accommodations near or on Dom Malan Square. Smaller guesthouses and bed and breakfasts tend to be less expensive but are generally tucked away in residential areas.
