It is worth to walk to the três coqueiros beach, there try the moqueca... More

Praia linda para mergulhar entre os corais, que aparecem em determinados períodos do dia (é importante checar as marés). wonderful beach for snorkeling among the coral reefs, that are more apparent in some moments of the day (it is worthful to check the tide)

This beach was not busy at all (March) and I felt I had the whole place to myself. At low tide there is a coral reef (a "lage") that surrounds the beach and I could easily snorkel around its clear waters with tons of fish. I will definitely come back.

There were too many people and a lot of noise. We found a much nicer, however smaller, natural pool on the same beach but not that far away.

Lovely beach with crystal clear water, great lagoons for those who like flat still water and observing what lies beneath the surface, and then surf for those who enjoy that.

That's it. The beach is alittle bit far from "Barra Grande". You can use a "jardineira" to get there or rent a small all terrain everywhere at the village. Ask at your hostel. The place is very good for snorkeling or scuba. Pay attention at the tidal chart.

Nice to walking on the beach, good to see fish, very clear water but to access a beach is very complicated, the road is terrible.

Great coral reef and I truly recommend be aware about the tides (any hotel have), so this way you know which time the waves are bigger and then you can enjoy better the coral reefs. In front of the beach is available dive kits for rent. Be are about the transport, when I was there I've problems to come back... More

If you re into swimming on a natural lagune, this is the place for you. If you re into suba diving or simply snorkeling around beautiful coral reefs, you ll love this place. Well preserved and protected by the local community, and everyone is very friendly around it. Make sure you go on a full moon week, where the tides... More

The beach and land surrounding where a bit spoiled with a mass tourism feel, but the biggest attraction is the coral reef that needs to be visited a low tide. It is not a outstanding reef but still nice for a visit.
