What a fantastic place. No roads and no cars (apart from 1 police golf cart and a small fire truck). We took a bus from Rio to Angra dos Reis then an hour & half boat ride to the island. Found lovely pousada to stay right on beach (yellow house)
Spent several days chilling on beach, no people hassling to sell you stuff. Beautiful clear sea - lots of fish and starfish. Orignally went for 5 nights and ended up staying longer. Took boat trip out round island with several stops to jump into lagoons to cool off and snorkel. One day we walked across the island (2.5hr trek) across to Lopes Mendes Beach on the south side - completely wild - getting full force of south atlantic - no boats can land there due to MASSIVE surf.
Lots of beer & caiprinha´s drunk and lots of tasty fish. Certainly had no problems getting a good meal since we arrived. Lots more photos on Flickr - and we only uploaded some so not to bore you
