Create an itinerary including Japones Island
Known to be a quiet nook in a busy area, Japones Island is a small resort with thatched food kiosks where you can sit down for a peaceful meal. Fresh fish is caught and served up in the traditional style here. The water along the beach is quite shallow and calm, making it a popular spot for families with little children. Farther up the coast you can find deeper waters for swimming and scuba diving. Boats can also be rented for sightseeing along the Itajuru Channel. Nearby trails attract ecotourists and casual hikers, as well as locals picnicking in secluded spots along the shore. When the tide is low, you can take a walk straight across the channel, from the island to the mainland.

  • This is a good place, boat access only. If you don’t swim it is a little scary later in the afternoon. Wear shoes - a lot of shells that can hurt the feet Once on the island great music cold beer!

  • Increadible! Very beautiful! Clean water with a lot of fish. You need to walk inside water (no danger and no problem, it is not deep) to go to the island or you can rent a boat to go to the other...
