small city, everyone has boats too access other places, there are some stores with artephats from people who live there. spend sometime at a hostel, close to the church. when You arrive at the island,Ya must decide what do you prefer.... nightlife or hiking and snorkelling around....Everything is powered by renewable energy.

cool beach with a real friendly vibe, grab a beer or some food at the beach side bars. Worth waking up at 5.30am to watch the sun rise over the bay as well

It is a paradise! You can have dinner, relax, drink beer or nice capirinha at the many bars and restaurants of the village with tables located on the beach with samba or forro played by locals...The view is stunning and the atmosphere is amazing. I will come back in the future!

Not a beach for swimming as the cove is full of boats, but a great place to hang out / chill when you need a break from the adventure stuff. Our favourite hang out place was Cafe del Mar; sit in their beaded recliners at the water's edge with a chilled coffee or a beer ....

I loved the way the harbor looked on arrival but it was not a place I wanted to hang out. There are so many beautiful places to go on the island, I wouldn't spend too much time in the harbor area.

Nervous center of the island, from where most of the tracks and there is greater availability of accommodations, restaurants and boats for tours. A simple fisherman village, no frills, with friendly and helpful residents, a singular energy and an amzing mountain and sea landscape.

The whole purpose of my trip to Rio de Janeiro, believe it or not, was to attend a concert at the Rock in Rio festival with my teenage son.
