One of the nicest beaches i have seen in the area. The water was pretty cold but the caipirinhas helped. Amazing sunset

Overall a good beach if you want to play ball or something similar. The water was too cold to stay in for more than ten minutes though.

I visited this place just to watch the sunset. It was an amazing scenery. The area is quite windy. An ideal place for surfers I must say. There are also countless restaurants, shops and bars nearby.
