In a small strip of land only thirty people are allowed to remain, a permanent controlled requirement of IBAMA.

In the left beach corner it's possible to see the ruins of the salt works, which operated when the Americans were on the island during World War II.
It's an area of the Marine Reserve with permanent control.
