One of the best beach I've ever seen. The water is so clear and warm. The sand is so white. Loved it and will be back there for sure.

If you know the Caribbean beaches, you will certainly feel, you are in one of them! The sea is crystal clear, you see the bottom of the sea with yours fishes. The beach has no access to the city. It is necessary that u take a ferry boat to gain access to paradise!

must have been wonderful in 1500, when cabral reached brazil, but now its jammed with tourists and full of litter. restaurants are expensive, unclean, and food takes ages to come. we had better eat elsewhere.

By far the most beautiful beach I've ever been to. The walk over the hill to it adds to it breathtaking view from above.

I went to this beach by a boat and it was really beautiful trip . The boats can't take u to the land so u have to get off the boat and walk in shallow water for less than one minute. It's fun and even funnier to see all the other people arriving to the beach with their stuff, jumping... More

a nice hike up and a beautiful beach! you can only get there by boat or walking but it is worth it.... the hike is somewhat of a workout so unfortunately it might be limiting to some people
