... br> Happily, after an initial attempt to bodysurf & wash off all the sweat of the boat ride/walk, headed off down the beach for my own little patch of paradise near the rocks – got a shady one inclined to provide a backrest – luxury and the water here was calm enough (once through the waves) to swim and beautifully clear & green.
Headed back for a much needed quick dip and beer before the boat back out – had more of the same, plus a/c, once I ...
... guide around a short walking track which took us to Black Beach which has very fine black sand that feels like mud. Then to a nice shaded inlet and the attached ruins of the island prison where you can see some of the old cells.

... with a local music band, it was the birthday of the guitarist (63 yo) we arrived at 3 or 4 pm and we got home around 11pm, we had an unforgettable time with them. (see video)
All up we stayed 5 days on the island between hiking in the jungle and enjoying the most amazing beaches. And Kieran also saved a Crab (see photos)
It’s time for us to leave the island and go to our next stop which is Paraty and Trindade.
