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.
