Regular ferries (R$3.50) depart from the center for Neópolis, a hilltop colonial town with historic buildings and fine crafts for sale. During high season, it may be possible to get on an organized tour to the Foz do São Francisco (around R$70 per person), where the river meets the sea at a beach with dunes and natural pools. Try Farol da Foz Ecoturismo, located about a 30-minute drive south, for these and other trips in the area.
