Photographer's Note

Araucaria Heterophylla defines the skyline of Praia da Amora (translation is Blackberry Beach, but most tourists think it means Love Beach), at Ponta Garça, 9 km east from the islet.

Except for the arid coasts (Sahara, etc), there is no other subtropical beach where so few people swimmed in the mid of Autumn (mid November in the northen Hemisphere) with water still above 20°C.

Ironically this is the closest beach to the main location for Ilha dos Amores (1), the TV program with the highest rates Monday to Saturday in the portuguese television, from March 26, 2007 until today. (2)

Notes
1- Ilha do Amor means Island of Love. But there is no two words translation in english for "Ilha dos Amores", as coined first in the "Lusíadas" odyssey, by the defining personality of the skyline of portuguese poetry, Luíz Vaz de Camões.
