I’m a big fan of the 1000 places to see before you die calendar. Every day I’m turning the page seeing places I’ve been to, places I’m going to in the near future. And sometimes I just memorize beautiful places. This is true for the Praia do Aventureiro and its famous L-shaped palm. I went there and then remembered that I’ve already seen it.
The palm was obviously brought to being parallel to the horizon by loosening ground. Later it simply grew up again. Great view – but as everybody climbed on the palm there is now a rusty sign forbidding this.
As every second person on Ilha Grande seems to be a boat captain there are lots of tours going here – sometimes part of a half-around-the-isle, sometimes part of a full-round-trip. Enjoy a Skol beer at this nice place!
