One of the best beaches. Great surf. Has beach restaurants bars as well but plenty of natural space. Over Xmas, new year it can take a while to get to as traffic can be bad.

A fun, relaxing beach. It was high season so pretty busy but not overcrowded. Spent the day here, you can rent beach umbrellas quite cheap. There is a great little bar restaurant with amazing acai bowls, for a little break.

It is a great beach with structure like parking places with a shower (choose one of the firsts parking places if you are coming from the Lagoa). There is one almost in the top of the mountain that is a nightmare. You can go to a restaurant or choose to rent a chair and admire the beach.

My husband and I spent the whole day here just enjoying the sun, drinking caipirinhas and chilled coconuts and watching the surfers in the water... It was lovely!
