The fireplace is located in the pebble on the beach next to the campsite. You can only make fire in this small area. Unfortunately the area does not have drinking water so you’ll need to take all the water, and firewood you wanna use in the fireplace. All waste produced will also have to be transported back.
It is allowed to fish but only using line, spear fishing is strictly prohibited. Keep in mind that this is a nature reserve and a sensitive ecosystem. There is no excuse for camping in “Ponta de São Lourenço” without having a dive in the clear and fresh water from the sea.
