ILHA DO BOI (THE COW ISLAND)

The Ilha do Boi (The Cow Island) is one a rich district of Vitória. The island is located near the Vitória Shopping Mall (Shopping Vitória) and the Curva da Jurema. The east side of the island borders the Bay of Vitória and the view of Vila Velha (neighbouring town) is beautiful: view of the Morro do Moreno, the Third Bridge and the Convento da Penha. Below a short wall, the shore is framed by big rocks where migratory birds look for food and can be observed/photographed easily.
