I'm half brazilian and been here a few times and brought my boyfriend here last year. I absolutely love this place! It is unlike anywhere else and the fishes and the water are both beautiful to look at. Swimming is great here, too. The only problem I have that is directly with the lagoon, is the amount of pollution creeping... More

The entire island is impressive and a must see. Take boat rides that last all day so you can see different beaches. If would take too long to walk to all of them but definitely spend time walking around the island.

Like the other reviews I have read the snorkeling here is OK but it is very crowded with tourists. You must arrange a boat to take you here. You will most likely be with other tourists unless you arrange a private boat. This was one of several beaches that we were taken to. I wish the snorkeling were better but... More

This place is way overrated on Tripadvisor. There were at least 30 boats and hundreds of people all snorkling at the same place. There were only fishes because people are feeding them with crisp and breadcrumbs. Some boats had loud musics. Don't go there for a quiet and relaxing trip!

I suggest for those who stay at the island, go early, at the beginning of the low tide. Other wise, it gets full of boats and the fish are harder to be seen!

Visited during my Meia Volta tour. Pretty spot although not as beautiful as the photos I had seen. Still a nice spot to stop for a bit and go for a swim.....

We visited Lagoa Verde during our 5-day hike around the island and really enjoyed this place, it was very nice to swim in its clear warm water and snorkel with fish after long day of walking. We arrived at Lagoa Verde from Bananal around 4pm on Monday and there was none there, no boats or other tourists. It can be... More

This place could be nice without all the boats around. It is too famous to go there, so it is not anymore nice. Do not expect to see fish, they will never stay there ..
