The island of Araujo is the second largest island of Paraty Bay, second in size only to the island Cotton. Its highest peak is 198 meters and has about two kilometers long and one kilometer wide at its widest part. There there is a caiçara community, some still living from fishing, but most working in the vacation homes on the island or as a sailor vessels of the owners of these houses. This community is concentrated near the church of St. Peter, on the beach of Pontal (west side of the island). Virtually the entire east side of the island, overlooking the Bay of Paraty was sold to “outsiders”, where summer homes were built. Being close to the mainland (300 meters in the shortest distance) is the only island of Paraty Bay that has electricity.
To know the island, you can rent a whaling in Praia Grande, another caiçara community, but which is on the mainland ( located ten kilometers from Paraty by Rio-Santos highway).
There is a beautiful walk around the island, well marked trail. Starting at the Pontal beach, next to the church, this walk goes through beaches, caves, flour mills and a gazebo with fantastic view of the entire bay of Paraty. One suggestion is to hire a local guide to accompany the walk so he can explain some of caiçara way of life and indicate the best places to meet.
