Want fantastic waves? Here is the place of excellence, a big bay where the waves come left up to 4 meters, with side offshore wind. It is a coastal area, located in the southeast of the island, a must-visit point for water sports practitioners, in addition to the beautiful beach, which serves as a nesting point for turtles, forming part of a network of beaches in this area that are visited by turtles by the thousands.
Ervatão beach is a place threatened by spawning turtles. However, there are movements for their preservation, since 1998, awareness and training camps for the defense of turtles have been carried out on the site, both nationally and internationally, also involving surveillance actions. Now there is a non-governmental conservation organization called Natura 2000, that monitors this area.
