It's very hard to get there, but as soon as you get, it's worth. Wonderful beach where you can see corrals through the water. The neighborhood has many great hotels and restaurants.

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....More

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.

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...More
