  • We were around 2 hours on the island, very beautiful place but if you don't do the trail, there's not much to do. It has a Museum, but very small. Some shops and a bar. In the bar the service is bad, or waiters have ill will to meet, stay in a group talking while customers are trying to be seen. In addition to being expensive. There's a restaurant walking a little more, but we were not there.

  • 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.
