This is a great beach! Sand is white, thin and clean. The water is very transparent with a emerald green colour. You will find parking spaces along the beach and plenty of places to eat. Must go if your in town!

It wasn't my best beach in Região dos Lagos - RJ, but it was a nice experience. If you don't have much days to spend in this region, you would better choice some places first.

Unless you like cold water... it isn't a good place to stay. It's a beautiful place but there is strong wind and verrryyy cold water. The fortification isn't well conserved and there isn't good explanations our local guides.

Good place for water sports, surf and kite surf when conditions allow. Crowded during January and holidays. Clean, pristine water and white sand. Great for walking bare footed as well.

The beach was crowded, but it's expected on a holiday weekend. Despite the crowd, it's still a great beach. The water is cold but bearable, and the small waves can be fun.
