One more destroyed paradise beach. I can't understand the Brazilian way when they go to the beach? They gadering thousands people on a small spot, having food and drinks enjoying their self. In the afternoon they throw all garbage in the sand. Praia dos Caneiros is dirty! There is two big big restaurants or Moore like amjusmentparks where all thousands... More

You find the river bay and the famous church st. benedicto there. There are now building huge resorts and apts there. Entire area is very pricy incl. Bora... More

A place to remember. A place in Brasil to go. A beach so beautiful as any caribenan place. A mix of green and blue sea, quiet and peaceful.

The palm trees give this place quite a charm. Arrive early to see the natural pools and don't miss the boat rides, but be careful with high prices. We booked our own boat for 6 people for 100 Reais (Orlando with boat named Alegria I) where at the parking lot the price was 50 Reais per person!!

The beach is nice. However, I've been there when it was raining and therefore wasn't as good as I imagined.

My husband and I drove here from Porto de Galinhas for the day. It was about an hour and a half ride. Beautiful ride too. We went to a restaurant/park called Bora Bora for the day. We took a private boat ride that was about 2 hours long to some of the popular stops. The area was absolutely beautiful. Well... More
