It is one of the most popular places for local specially because of the closeness to the shore. The two island combined provide a great place for swimming or just laying down in the beach. Also there is local merchants for foods and drinks. Have a visit!!!

On this beach you really experience the feeling of being in the best paradise of the world. With clear, calm and warm waters you can fall in love with this place. It has easy access by boat!

We went there by private boat with family. The water is amazingly clean and clear. You can stay on the island and then go play in the sea. No resturant on site but there is small snack shops. But the best is take some food with you.

Cataguas is the best, I am not saying the other Islands aren't great also but I love Cataguas for a number of reasons. The ride out is cheap $25 rs per person and it is easy and fast to get to. The boats are smaller and just for taxiing people back and forth.you can buy food and drink on the... More

Just beautiful. Classic Angra at its best, even when it's drizzling. Transparent waters and beautiful marine life. A must-see when in Angra.

This place is a sand bank in the middle of the ocean. Really cool place for snorkeling, or just enjoying the water in the middle of the ocean. Don't forget to bring your own snacks because there is no food or drinks for sale in there.
