What we will do
- We board our escuna, a sort of barquetine typical of Brazil equipped with restrooms and bar service, that makes us discover amazing beaches while entertaining us with traditional music and fresh fruit.
- Upon arriving at Lagoa Azul, we can admire the beauty of this small bay with its crystal-clear water, corals, tropical fish and starfish. We stop for some snorkelling and, with a bit of luck, we might be able to see marvellous sea turtles.
