My wife, my son and I are spending a week in this beach. It is nice, but it is still with marks of poorly educated people, who throw empty bottles and trash in the sand. During the morning, with the low tide it has plenty of space to walk or run, in the afternoon, with the high tide in certain... More

Walking south along Tambau Beach going south, one comes to the point, Cabo Branco, which is the easternmost point in the Western Hemisphere, matching a point... More

A bit crowded, though. Great place to meet/watch people. I specially reccomend Quiosque Totoró, on the board walk of Cabo Branco Beach, a few miles ahead of Tambaú Beach.

It's a very nice place to spend the day - lots of alternatives for local food, coconut water and Caipirinhas. The neighborhood is lively, with good restaurants and shops.

We stayed there all day with friends. For a reasonable price, there is food, chairs, shade! The beach is calm with warm waters. Perfect for kids too.

I love beaches! All kinds of beaches: small, quiet, secluded beaches; huge, crowded beaches; and what I call city-style beaches, City-style beaches are ones where the local people come to relax, socialize, people-watch, exercise, compete in sports, etc. etc. etc. Tambau beach is a great city-style beach. I'm going to be living just one short block away from the center... More
