The tours generally leave from the village of Abraão, but are also planned for those who stay in Araçatiba. The boats' exit is scheduled at 10am, their return at 5pm. These boats offer glaciers with ice cubes so tourists can bring their own drink. The visit includes a stop for lunch, often at the end of the morning. It is difficult to anticipate the restaurant or the beach where you will be for lunch. All in all, these are seaside restaurants with choices of varied dishes, but always with a large amount of seafood. Prices are reasonable, but it is advisable to bring a snack if you want to avoid feeling hungry during the day.
At the heart of a small archipelago, the Lagoa Azul enchants by the tint of its waters. This natural pool is similar in color to the Caribbean, classifying it as a unique site that has become a favorite spot for diving enthusiasts and anyone who just wants a swim. It is one of the most popular places for those visiting the big island, a must visit besides the visit to the Verde lagoon.
The islands of Macaco, Comprida and Redonda form the protective barrier of Lagoa Azul. The most common way of discovering the site is by boat or tandem, but the site is also accessible by T3 trek.
The Lagoa Azul is part of the half-roads of the island and belongs, besides the island of Angra, to the places frequented by Ilha Grande and Angra tourists. The average commute time (which includes other steps) is 6 hours, with a stop time on each island or on the beach. It is also common practice to stop for lunch in the restaurant chosen by the tour company.
This hike is very popular with walkers looking for the peace and wonder of the Dois Rios, as well as for those who venture through wilderness trails, such as that Pico do Papagaio, Caxadaço and Parnaioca. Some dare to compete with Dois Rios, but the conditions of the road do not allow a comfortable ride. The walk is by dirt road.
During the walk, there are some fountains to refresh you, but the animals use them too. Pack a flashlight, water, a snack, a candle, a solar screen. Only at Dois Rios there is a bar and a restaurant serving meals. There are no hostels or campgrounds.
In addition to the beautiful beach, in each corner flows a river that before throwing itself into the sea forms spectacular pools.
