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.
