The next day we rented a buggy, and off we were. After driving for an hour or so, and passing by some nice places, we finally arrived to what was supposed to be “the best beach of the island”. I had seen several pictures, and thought I knew what to expect, but what I saw was really beyond imagination…
…then again, this is only a picture. That beach was really really amazing, and I couldn’t wait to get there.
However, I soon realized that to go to that beach, we would have to go down some very steep steps! That was kind of intimidating, but getting to the beach was very important. I let Flavio go down first, and followed him.
After five or ten minutes of going down ladders and stairs, we were finally on the beach… with about 10 or 15 other people. I was really excited to be there, and more so when Flavio suggested that we go snorkelling.
That was the first time in this entire trip that I really wished I had an underwater camera. The water was a very deep blue colour, but also very transparent, and we could see lots of multi-coloured exotic fish swimming in all directions… It was an amazing feeling, and I was very thankful to Flavio for bringing me there.
We stayed on the beach for sometime, relaxing, talking and taking silly touristic pictures – one of my best beach days in Brazil so far.
Later on, we moved to another beach, with strange rock formations. Not too suitable to swim, but definitely suitable for nice pictures!
… we took even more pictures with the landscape…
…and we couldn’t resist going to see the sunset from the most famous part of the island. The visibility was not great, but it was still very nice up there.
Yes, I know what those two mountains look like, and everyone seems to think the same 😛
