Beyond the fishes, we saw even turtles and ray in snorkelling. It was very peaceful, as we were there during the week, we avoided the crowd that probably is bigger during weekends

Wonderful place, the sands are very white and is a good place to swinn. Unfortunately the people are very dirty and throw garbage at the beach.

Sensational place to snorkel and see the fish. Dives can be with professional equipment or just snorkeling for amateurs. The waters are calm, clear and super warm. The islands are really a paradise!

Perfect place to snorkel. Lots of marine life. There were quite a few tourist boats but that is to be expected during the summer vacations. Take bread to attract zillions of fish.

Easily one of the most beautiful and stunning things I've done in my life. It can get a little crowded but if you swim a little bit you can get awesome pictures without anyone else on them, and get the complete experience.

We visited this island during our stay in Angra. We had a boat trip and snorked around the island about a hour. Attention, there is no beach there.

A good place to swim, though there is no beach. You must go with a boat and you swim around. It´s in your way to Gipoia so you can visit both places the same day.
