The Ilha de Toque Toque Boutique Hotel is isolated and comfortable, a paradise for those seeking tranquility and contact with nature. With only ten rooms scattered in a 190,000 sq ft area, it ensures exclusivity, privacy, and personalized service. The small beach is little frequented and deserted most of the time. Even on weekends and holidays, there are few people, which accounts for its quality and cleanness. There are only a few houses, unpaved streets, and no shops or condos.
