One of the best little coastal strips to take your pick of some really fabulous seafood restaurants. The village is like a little piece of Portugal dropped into Brazil and the original locals are from the Asores.

Small town with cute Portuguese houses and small cafes. We walked around for half an hr. Our friends told us it tends to get busy during peak season.
