Best Beach in the Island. Use comfortable shoes to get there. There are stairs that will take your breath away. Most beautiful view that I have seen. Water, comfortable shoes, sunscreen and be ready ...a lot of effort ahead.

It has won 3 times the most beautiful beach in the world an sure deserves it. Keep in mind its a protected area and the access is difficult (you must go down some stairs) , but its worth everything.

Response from Travelling C | Reviewed this property |
Hi, I guess you will have to count somewhere between 400-500Euros. Sounds like a lot but Brazil is a huge country. In fact, the flight takes around 4 hr 30 min including a stop in Recife. Check the websites from Brazilians... More
