Probably the most amazing beach that I'd never been before. Don't hesitate to visit it. You may take a guided trip buying a tour in one of the travel agencies on Arraial downtown

While at the beach I went snorkeling and saw many different kinds of fish on the reef. They were not colorful like some other locations but it was like swimming in an aquarium. The sands are white and the water clear. The one draw back is that the water was rather cold.

A gorgeous beach accessed by ferry which taken 40 mins but costs €5 return! However if you want to get there quickly take the water taxi it's €6 each way but fast. The crossing is peaceful and we weren't in a hurry but there's lots of water flies and Mosquitos which can be annoying. The advice I will offer. Is... More

Lovely beach, soft sand and clean. But the water is a dream to swim in . We only spent over an hour on it. Visits are strictly by boat only. Clear and most beautiful water. And on the way there we so turtles. Treasure, the whole experience.

Clear blue water and soft white sands, really nice beach and it is less crowded. The water is cold but you would feel warm as soon as you get off from the water and get exposed to the sun

It is a wonderful beach that can only be reached by boat, because it is located in an island that is a natural reserve. You can stay there only for fourty minutes, and that leaves you with the feeling that it wasn't enough.

One of the most special Brazilian beaches. It has a cave at the beach, white dunes and blue sea. Stunning but wild, nothing to eat or to buy, just to pass a few hours in a tour.
