Too much waves for me. I mean, maybe if you plan to surf, that would be nice. I also got a pretty weather (it was almost summer, but I was not really lucky). Maybe, at summer time, the place looks better;
Very long stretch of beach. Its becoming more and more populated, but still reserves long miles of virgin nature. The famous resort of Costao do Santinho is in the rightmost corner of the beach. Great place to spend a sunny day.
This beach has it all.
Nature: sand dunes to the north, paths through the forest in the south with nice views to the ocean.
Archaeology: engravings in the stone from the ancient Sambaqui people.
Beach: white sand, blue water.

The beach of Santinho is a beautiful, long stretch of sand, with a large hill at either end. The hill on the South end of the beach has rock engravings made several thousand years ago and efforts have been made to preserve them.
