  • Nice place but has no on-site attractions few stores and small town to visit in 1:00 tops

  • The worst investment I could do on my vacation, starting with the "pirate ship" which has nothing of pirate, following by that tiny and dirty beaches by marine debris. Go out to eat is an Odyssey, at the extremely high prices I might add frightening overly salted food (chicken and Bacon chicken sandwich) and the invasion of bees that you have on the table which forces you to go fast there. The boat ride is a hodgepodge, almost two hours watching sea water and buildings in the distance. It only salvageable is the stop to pull you to the water in sea open. I do not come back ever!

  • Nice place to visit but quite expensive.

  • To spend a while okay, if you go for walks and they leave you all day, it is not recommended. The liquefied and drinks are expensive but the food if it is expensive. The water is a little dirty but ideal for children because it is not deep and there are no waves. You cross a boat for 10 reais and 15 turns to the island. You can also go by the pirate ship.
