After a short 15min trek following a stream, through the Atlantic jungle, we caught our first view of this pint sized beach that packs a punch, the tides are quick, currents are strong and a lot of people (surfers and swimmers) share this tiny space,...More

Perfect place to start surfing and enjoy the nature. There's a 15-minutes trail to arrive there and then you'll be able to enjoy this beach.

This beach has nice waves and may be good for surfers (there are a lot of them). The place is nice and beautiful, but the water has some seaweed. If you are visiting the 4-beaches, give a look, otherwise Hawaii and Itambezinho are better.

We loved Engenhoca beach! Perfect for families with smaller children. The track that leads to the beach is also very nice.

Outside the city, so you need a car;/taxi/bus to get there. Starting from the indicated place on the road, walk about 20 min to reach this place and other 15 to reach Havaizinho beach, just beside.

After a short walk through the jungle in which you can see old sceletons of buildings you get to a very nice beach, with lots of nice surfers. You can even buy some small snacks at a beach bar.
