The boat tour to the natural pools in Pajuçara was great! The tour must be done in the morning when the tide is low. The water is crystal clear and we could see several fishes and give them food during the tour!

Close to Radisson Hotel and Craft Market and great for three generations. We had no issues with security during both days.

Avoid Sundays. Too crowded. You can also book a trip in a Jangada (local fishing boat) to the natural pools.

The beach itself is not very good, it is dirt, polluted and has too many vendors. But the the natural pools are beautiful and worth a visit. You can't miss it.

Despite being a good location, the beach is unfit for bathing. There are rides in small boats to natural pools, away from the beach. But virtually all the other urban beaches of Miami are unfit for bathing too (see www.ima.al.gov.br in services - bathing). In...More
