I really enjoyed the Sancho/Golfinhos trail and the view from the mirante, but I didn’t get to see any dolphins so I got bored and left.

Visited this beach on a private tour. Spent some time swimming and sunbathing but the highlight was when our Guide took us to scuba diving to see the turtles and lots of fish and underwater wildlife. There is facilities to shower, food and drink and...More

It is advertised that you will probably see dolphins. This is not true. We were told buy the researchers there that its quite rare to watch them. Nonetheless, the view is great, makes it a good trail.

Trovao dos Mares should go slower when sailing through the bay. They go too fast on the way back and you can barely enjoy the ride with the dolphins.

If you want to see hundreds of dolfins at once, early in the morning, this is the place. You are on an overlook tho so you will not seem them up close but they do provide binoculors.

Nice beach to pay a visit, but not to spend all day there, it's small. You can visit there walking from Cacimba do Padre beach.

The entry fee to the island is about 65 reais per day and the park fee is 97 reais for 10 days! You can rent a snorkel but it is worthy to bring yours, it is cheaper and better!
