313: Cactus plants at Morro da Pescaria
Guarapari is a popular beach resort in the state of Espirito Santo, at a distance of about fifty kilometers south of the capital Vitória. Especially among the mineiros (inhabitants of the neighboring state of Minas Gerais) Guarapari is very populair. Guarapari boasts some beautiful beaches, of which Praia dos Namorados and Praia do Morro are the most famous. Not far from Praia do Morro is a natural park, which is currently managed by the municipality. For a small fee, the visitor can follow a path of little more than one kilometer to a beach surrounded by natural vegetation, Praia do Ermitão. From this beach it is even possible to swim to Ilha da Raposa (‘Fox Island’). The park hosts original Atlantic Forest type and the so-called restinga type vegetations. The cactus plants on the photograph were located on one of the rocky slopes.
