Baía dos Porcos (Bay of Pigs)

Baía dos Porcos (Bay of Pigs) Review

The best showcase for the island's stunning natural beauty, the "Bay of Pigs" is a literal paradise tucked away on the north ridge of the island. Strict conservation laws ensure that its crystalline waters are rarely crowed. Grab a mask and dive into the natural swimming pools here to glimpse starfish, sea urchins, and even the occasional turtle or stingray as they wait for the tide to rise and take them back out to sea. The view over the rugged rocks in the bay is awe-inspiring. Further down the rocky path, there is a small trail that leads to the Baía dos Sanchos and allows you to avoid the R$130 entrance fee to that beach. Buggy drivers (bugueiros) are the local means of transportation for accessing the different beaches here. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; swimming.
