Escuna Tour Around the Beaches
You can tour the beaches yourself, in you car and following the map. Or, you can take a escuna (boat) tour that takes you to a 3-hour ride to the 5 or 6 most famous beaches. There are several escuna tours options, available in the front desk of your hostel/hotel.
The one we took was the Queen Lory. It was nice, it took us to beaches Canto, Joao Fernandes, Joao Fernandinho, Tartaruga and Virgens, making stops in Joao Fernandes and Tartaruga for some swimming.
Besides, during the cruise you are invited fruits, drinks and other snacks and samba is played in order to give it a party environment! The escuna was also equipped with all implements necessary to get in the sea and swim safely for around 15 minutes.
