Next to the fort there's a curios program to protect a big mammal called manatee, locally named Peixe-Boi.
We may see several tanks where they are created and feed, and each half an hour a projection explaining the project.
Though taken by surprise to the atelier, we gave a good look around and talked a while with the artist. It's a young boy, with ideas, and... good hands.
Locally, I was a little confused about the location, thinking in another island, but arriving at home I checked Google Earth and confirmed that it was inland, in the coast facing Itamaracá.
Right on the beach, you have a fort generally called Orange due to wrong connection with Dutch.
It is a Portuguese fort, with the typical Portuguese military architecture, providing good observation points over the beach and Coroa do Avião. Inside, there's a small shop.
A small islet facing the fort is well promoted as the highlight of the area. Well, it's a good place to bath, seafood is there, and you can see people catching it, the place is absolutely calm, but it has nothing you can't get inland.
Unless you cultivate loneliness (with a few more dozens) it's just a place to see, have a drink, and eventually, eat seafood.
It's a very quiet and safe beach, in both sides of the fort. In option, if you cross to "Coroa do Avião", the quality is the same.
Oysters are the top production, and widely offered. We didn't taste them, but had a good swim.
Not cheap (maybe negotiable - I had no patience to try), this trip takes you in a short ride along the mangles, an old furnace of chalk and the atelier of a craft producer, to the islet of Coroa do Avião.
Nothing special, but OK as a different program. No need to search for, you'll be approached as soon as you enter the beach.
A strange curiosity in the bay, is an old chalk furnace, with the residence atop of it.
We didn't go ashore, but I think we didn't miss anything special
Close to the beach, a short ride across the mangles is an opportunity to watch its typical life, from fish to birds (here and there under a delicious and welcome shade)
