    Along the streets: The typical nights

    Meeting the locals

    During the day, my traveling companions on this trip (an American and Paraguayan) and I busied ourselves with walking the trails, visiting the beaches and swimming in the cool waters.

    However at night, our plans usually consisted of drinking at random places along the streets and eating copious amounts of seafood. It is a small and friendly place so if you are social person, you will soon know and recognize nearly everyone.

    There is at least one "club" (located on Rua do Bicão), but it charges cover charge and many times is not all that great. So to go with the normal laid back attitude of the island, most people simply sit along the street cafes or more specifically along the streets themselves.

    Dress Code: Dress code is completely casual. Dress for the weather and don't forget the inspect repellent after sun down.

    Abra��o at night

    If you are looking to have fun after so much trekking during the day, Abraão is the best place for you to be lodged in...
    Almost everynight there´s a handcraft fair right in front of the pier....but that is not the only option you have. The little village is loaded with funky pubs, reaturants and cafeterias that sell from brazilian typical food and seafood to japanese and italian, for all kinds of budgets...
    And of course....there are the candies =)))).....next to the fair you´ll find some people selling brazilian sweets, like the "brigadeiro", made of chocolate and "cocadas", of cocconut....I have not met a brazilian person that hates brigadeiro yet....=)

    Dress Code: just change your wet swimming suit....

    Non-traditional Nightlife

    Nightlife in Abraao is unpredictable and unusual. There seems to be no ryhme or reason as to why certain restaurants or bars are open on certain nights of the week. It appears as though there is always something going on and you can find a chopp at a cafe or creperia or mixed drink until about 4am whether from a street vendor who will give you free homemade cheese with each purchase, or a strange all night club that was only mysteriously open on one of the 4 nights that we spent on the island (and it was a Monday).

    Dress Code: As casual as possible. If you haven't gotten the chance to change out of your bathing suit...not a problem.

    Restaurante Esquinas Bar: chat, meet people, watch the ocean, have a skol

    We began a lot of our nights at this little bar on the beach. It is directly across from the beach and the ferry. Many locals seem to come here for a drink after a day of work on the boats of trails. In fact we ran in to our waiter from dinner and our boat captain frequently.

    Dress Code: No one would notice if you wore your swim suit only. In fact, I think that a lot of people did.

    The town square

    There are no clubs or anything in Abraao. In fact there's only one place where you can have a beer in the whole island. That's where it all happens during the night. You grab a beer, meet some people, buy some artcraft and hear the local play brazilian music. If it rains, don't worry, it'll pass. After a certain hour (don't remember exactly) the pub closes and everyone goes to a very close place, where there are locals playing music, and where you can dance 'til late. Very good music by the way!!!

    Dress Code: As you like

    In Abraao,there's a great " FORRO " club (FORRO:a brazilian dance ),called " Bar Verdinho Da Ilha.
    Even for the beginners in this dance,the music will take you straight to the arms of "that " girl and you just have to follow the steps!!
