  • We went with Cassi Turismo. The tour has the option of only Ilha dos Frades or along with Itaparica, but on the day we went, as it rained a lot in the previous days, it was better to visit both places, since the island of the friars had suffered from the rains and was not so clean. It's beautiful. Too bad it wasn't in the best condition. Search first if there was too much rain.

  • What perfection! Too bad the trade is weak around. We only found drinks to buy, and some locals offering fish cakes. Infrastructure needs improvement. On the beach we only found chemical toilets and nothing clean. That beauty deserved more attention from the rulers!

  • I loved the island, there was low tide so walking until you could get into the water was enough, for lunch you only have an option that is the restorant of the island that does not give you a little expensive drinks but very delicious food for 40 r a good buffet

  • While visiting Salvador for a friend's 45th birthday, a boat was chartered to go to Ilha dos Frades. The day from beginning to end was beautiful. Enjoying a great time with friends on the water. Then we arrive on the island and it was amazing. The beach is just heaven and we had a very tasty seafood lunch. While frollicking in the water, it was time to go and no one wanted to leave. It was one the best days ever.

  • It is reached after about an hour and a half of sailing from the marina of Salvador de Bahia. Beautiful beaches, not very crowded, are filled only with tourists who disembark daily and a few others. The sea is warm and with beautiful waves.
