The beach is nice, but the sand strip is short. The place is beautiful, but it is a long way to go just for a beach. There are some restaurants, but nothing espetacular.

Beautiful sunset. Restaurants available. Also,a pier where you can to Camamu by boat, also where the boats leave for the islands rides.

There are some small boats around this beach and therefore others are better for sunbathing and swimming. Nevertheless we went here a few times for strolling and playing with the boys.

The beach here is the worst in the area as you have the boats moving around here. The beaches around are amazing and this one can be skipped.

Probably one of the best places to watch the sun go down in the area as you can see it going down on the sea.

This is a really beautiful beach and city. You can take a boat from Camamu to Barra Grande, about half an hour in the fast boat. This is a very nice place for a day trip. You will find nice beaches with palm trees and...More
