Photographer's Note

Here in the Enseada do Abrao (Abraao Cove) lives a nice village, Vila do Abrao which is the largest of the communities in all of Ilha Grande and the main gateway for tourism, assuming the role of economic capital of Ilha Grande. The cove has a very cropped environment, consisting of 14 beaches and 5 islets. The relief of the mountains is the striking point, with peaks of great slope and altitude with beautiful shapes, with Pico do Papagaio being the most curious. It has several water courses descending from the mountains and flowing into the beaches. Children can run through the streets without danger! No cars are allowed here, there are no bridges, ferries and roads.rnVehicles must be on the mainland in private parking lots.
