Fodor's Review

Roughly 23 km (14 miles) southwest of Soure, Joanes was the island's first settlement. Poke around the ruins of a 16th-century Jesuit mission blown-up by the Portuguese when they expelled the order from the area, bask on a beach, and have a meal in one of the town's seafood restaurants. A taxi from Soure costs about R$60 round-trip.
