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.

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.
