What To Expect
Go on a fun trekking experience by following the Naufragados Trail which is the most popular trail of the island. This secluded island's locals are known to live simply without the aid of electricity, making their existence eco-friendly.
Start off by meeting with your local guide. After the meetup, trek through the Naufragados Trail which will lead you to the exciting attractions that await! Visit the Fort of Naufragados, a fort designed to guard the entrance to the South Bay and defend the Araçatuba fortress from a higher position. Admire the Naufragados Lighthouse, a lighthouse that towers 15 meters high and has three antiquated canons that were installed in the beginning of the 20th century.
Next, visit the Fortress of Nossa Senhora da Conceição de Araçatuba, a fortress built by the Portuguese to protect the entrance to the South Bay of Ilha de San Catarina. Then, come to the mesmerizing Naufragados Beach that will definitely make the long hike worth it. Be fascinated by the beach's chilly air, wide stretch of sand best for sunbathing and its calm waves perfect for swimming and other fun water activities.
Lunch will be enjoyed as you take advantage of the free time from the trekking and sightseeing. After lunch, visit the small antiquated village of Ribeirão da Ilha. This quaint village is decorated with small, colorful houses and shops, all following the Azorean architectural style.
