This in-city palm-tree beach is great for both day and nighttime enjoyment. During the day, the wide sandy shore has plenty of room for sun and ocean bathers as well as beach volleyball, soccer/futebol and paddle ball players. The sidewalk/calçadão is shared by walkers and...More

Great place to take a walk anytime of the day. The views are beautiful during the day and at night there are a lot of places for drinks and food.

This place is very good to walk with restaurants and you feel security that is very rare in Brazil. This is very good to stay and for me is better than Tambaú Beach.
