We are at an Island in the Atlantic 240 mile away from the
main land of Brazil. It is rugged with big swells but beautiful. The
Island is a nature reserve only 200 visiting people have access per day.
The ride in by rib is exciting and an experience we will not forget, we looked
like we had been swimming every time we arrived at the beach, surfing on the
waves into the shore, we also had to drag our dingy up the beach which was very
hard work, luckily we had help after the first day as the French took pity on
us dragging our heavy dingy.
We rented a buggy for 2 days to explore all the islands
beautiful beaches, we snorkeled for hours seeing, Sharks, Turtles and lots of
colourful fish. The water was so warm and clear, we had a fantastic
time. David and Lisa went diving to 8m with a diving school and had
a wonderful time too, seeing lots of fish so brightly coloured, Rays, Sharks
The famous landmark
The beaches closed at 18.00 until early morning so they are
free for the turtles to run down to the sea, to help them survive.
We swam with these guys
Also with these guys
David dived and saw a this wonderful Eel. I
think we decided that we will do our Padi course when we get to the Caribbean
and have more time as the waters are so clear.
Love Suzanne & David xx
