Cave Acaiá

The Cave Acaiá hides inside a wonderful spectacle. About 8 meters below sea level, there is a crack in the stone coast, where sea water has access to an underground room where there is a beach underground rock. Sunlight, propagated in water forms the fluorescence phenomenon that is impressive. In total darkness, we see a turquoise mist with flashing and bright spots as if they were diamonds.

The cave has about 30 meters wide and an average height of 1 meter. Access is by land, down a cave with narrow and difficult passage, almost 10 meters of the route is creeping and it is easy to dirty clothes. 

The trail that leads to Acaiá Cave is easy to walk, with small ups and downs, some wasteland stretches, sparse vegetation.

Curiosity about the cave of Acaiá:

The shape of the cavern can be compared as a bottle, whose bottom was connected with the sea and the neck opening is above the die. When the sea is with ocean currents and strong waves, the movement up and down the waves inside the cave, also causes a buzz in the air, suction and expiration. The intensity of the air stream can flutter such that gives hair long and strong enough to stir the foliage of the trees that are in the top entry.

There is a small site Arquelogico on the property, popularly called sambaqui and in 2013, an archaeological exploration found human bones which were estimated to 250 years and 3000 years.
