    Here you can get public poitas as it is part of the park created to preserve the site. The outermost poems are less protected from the south wind, but the inner ones protect better. We slept a few nights here and it was quiet. To go to the beach on the other side you can either leave the boat anchored on a ramp (bad option) or go around the jetty and anchor the boat on the beach (in the corner next to the other local boats). The beach has a good structure but is very touristy, receiving several schooners throughout the day. There is also another beach if you want to walk a little further. There is also a gazebo with a nice view of both beaches. When we went the path to the second beach was still under construction.

    Aqui é possível pegar poitas públicas pois faz parte do parque criado para preservar o local. As poitas mais de fora ficam menos protegidas do vento sul, porém as mais internas protegem melhor. Dormimos uns noite aqui e foi tranquilo. Para ir até a praia do outro lado você puder deixar o bote ancorado numa rampa (opção ruim) ou dar a volta no molhe e ancorar o bote na praia (no canto junto aos outros barcos locais). A praia tem boa estrutura mas é bem turística, recebendo várias escunas durante todo o dia. Também tem outra praia se você quiser caminhar um pouco mais. Existem também um mirante com uma vista legal das duas praias. Quando fomos o caminho para a segunda praia ainda estava em construção.
