Ilhas Martim VazThe Ilhas Martim Vaz (or Martin Vaz) are a group of 3 main islands and several smaller islets, situated about 30 miles east of Ilha da Trindade, having the same volcanic origin as Trindade. The claim of eastern-most point of Brazil goes to the southern island in the group (Ilha do Sul).
There is no human population on any of the Martim Vaz islands - in fact, as far as we know, only once has man set foot on the south island: in 1962, with the help of a helicopter. The waters surrounding the islands are treacherous, with many submerged rocks making it impossible to anchor.
There is some vegetation to be found here, but no trees. Interestingly, the island of Martim Vaz boasts its own endemic spider. There are also crabs and marine turtles in the area.
