Discover the famous Castelhanos beach thanks to a Jeep ride within the Atlantic forest and a boat tour along the southern coast !
We leave the agency by jeep at 10.30am to head to Castelhanos Beach, one of the most known and beautiful of the island (some guides call it one of the 10 most beautiful beaches of Brazil!). It’s a 20km ride through the protected national park. On your way there, the guide will stop at some interesting points of view and you’ll have the opportunity to know more about the park’s flora and wildlife. Once arrived on the other side of the island, you’ll be given two options : either to go directly to the beach and enjoy it until the end of the day, or to go first on a 45 minutes hike with our guide to discover the Cachoeira do Gato (Cat’s Waterfall). There will be waiting for you a majestic 90m waterfall and its fresh natural pool to swim in ! On your way back to Castelhanos beach, you’ll have time to enjoy this beautiful 2km wild sandy beach, have lunch at one of the traditional Caicara restaurants and go see the view over the beach from the Mirador!
At 4pm, your group will gather and you’ll head back to the agency by boat, enjoying beautiful views of the island’s coast and stoping at Praia da Fome, a remote and exquisite beach.
Don’t forget to bring : repellant, warm clothes for the way back, hiking shoes for the waterfall, swimsuits and money cash (no ATM there)
