Just stopped there for lunch, whilst on a boat trip. Restaurant was excellent. We ate a fish dish " Portuguese style" which the menu said would feed 2 people... Pity we hadn't 2 MORE people with us, the portions were so huge!!

I think the beaches were nicer than those in ilha Grande. However, both are great places to viist. I went during low season, so that helped as well.

If you are looking for an out of the way, lovely beach, this could be it. There are a few private cabins around the water and a boat pier, but that's about it. The water is warm and you can just float and relax. A few boats may stop but it's just calm and serene.

too many tourists and boats. It is just another island of the beaten track. There certainly are nicer beaches around the corner

On he SW of the island there's a beautifull beach, known as Dentist's Beach, very protected from the winds and seas, where the cruising sailboats can sleep safely and also fills with boats on weekends. I could send you some nice photos of most of those places. Also there´s a floating bar/ restaurant that delivers your orders to your boat.... More
