Useful hints for those who plan to visit this pearl of the southern Atlantic
and the most beautiful beach of the world (www.tripadvisor.com)
"...Here is paradise..."
...is what Americo Vespuci put down in his notes when he entered the island on the 10th of august 1504
In his report to the Portuguese crown, the Italian explorer further uses the words: -
"... Clear waters and an infinity of trees, beautiful birds, that eat out of our hands, a marvelous harbour..."
Thanks to the sensibility of the inhabitants and the strict laws on conservation of nature these words still hold today
- the birds still eat out of our hands
