Lovely place to visit. Very peaceful and with beautiful beaches. If you can afford stay in the Hotel Ilha do Boi. It is a nice place with nice view and it is not very busy in the weekends, what makes the place just nice to be.

a small but very lively beach with a nice view. There is also the possibility of using the (palm) trees surrounding the place for the people that need to stay in the shade.

We went to a conference that organised this trip in the city. We had 10 minutes in this island and headed to another city afterwards. It is not a big deal, but do take some pictures and if you are lucky you will see some turtles.

This island is very close to shopping and the tourist it has a privileged view of the Third Bridge, Frade Island and the sea. The beaches are clear and calm waters and the streets are quiet . There are local shops . You need to take snack and take care of belongings because robberies are constant.

Great beaches with beautiful people. At Senac hotel you can have a nice view from the bay. The beach on the right side is mostly visited by families. The one on the left side, aka Praia Grande is visited by younger people

Coziest beach in Vitoria, the best place for relaxation, swimming SUP. And you are not afraid there to be murdered by huge waves=) Dreaming of it being in cold Russia, and looking forward to see the place in two months
