Best beach for Biking and having a bit of quiet reading yoga meditation. We were staying at Yucas posada, former 1st Wind Surfing place in Brazil and now posada and Events/ Wedding place. Great Beach to Marry with teh Sunset as a background!

I have visited this beach for sailing what made my experience awesome. Wind gets on its right direction here and make a enjoyable experience with this flat sea. There is a couple houses right on the shore and there is a sailing club as well.

Fantástic beach and pier with very cozy and good restaurants at the sea front. Convenient to stay with houses with seafront and good beach walk, only 5 minutes from the rua das pedras, at the city center.
