This panoramic vista of the paradise below is reached after a steep climb. From the top, the sands of two beaches, Mariscal and Zimbros, look like you could just reach out and touch them. The trail up is long and can take up to an hour. Take lots of water, a light snack, and wear a pair of your most comfortable shoes. Along the way, take a moment to catch your breath and admire several rare species of orchids, including Laelia purpurata, official symbol of this state.

  • Many people during Christmas and weekends. You Need to arrive early or late afternoon with less people. Business hour (heat graph) in google map will tell you the best moment.

Monkey trail is much better than 360degree although it’s much harder at lease 40 minutes walk for a hill.
  • Epetaaacular!
