  • The site offers a small beach, trails and excellent structure with restaurant, cafeteria, bathrooms with shower, everything for you to spend the day with comfort. To get there you can catch a boat at the pier in fisherman's Association, or take one of several schooners that offer tours for beaches in the region (Caixadaço, Estaleirinho, pumps and Grave) after the tour they let visitors on the island, to return the visitor can take any schooner of the same company, they tend to spend every hour. Detail the island can be visited year-round, however services structure is only available in the summer season. Always visit the island on our own boat, there is a part of the beach for the anchor of the boats, we've been there dozens of times and never been charged entry.

  • When we got there and we were boat approved by officials with uniform white bermuda, florida shirt and hat, the feeling was that old sitcom, "Fantasy Island". Only thing missing was the Tattoo yelling: "the plane", hehehe. All kidding aside, the beach is beautiful, the trails too. The restaurants are great. And, as an unexpected surprise, has a museum with bones of Saber-toothed Tiger, giant sloth and Glyptodon!!! Sensational!!!

  • I was a short time, because it was just one stop in a cruise. However, where we descend, the sea was clear, calm and clean. good structure.

  • 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.

  • Very nice place but the water of the beach is full of algae.
