Interesting car drive down a very bumpy road but we arrived to find a lovely rustic beach.. Not quite as amazing as I was expecting but beautiful nonetheless and worth a day trip

Stunning beach, great views. I particularly enjoyed relaxing at divino's for the day - really peaceful and away from the crowds and excellent food as well. The road there is certainly part of the experience...

Wow! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! Peaceful. Remote , but still has all that you could need. Not a night club type spot so plan more for romance, family, and/or pure relaxation.

Well I do like the beach it IS very nice. Not a lot nicer than other beaches in Bahia, but still very nice. Great for swimming, since the outer reefs takes care of the otherwise heavy waves. Prices are close to ridiculous - like a 125R$ for a moqueca.... come on....! The road there was definitely an experience in a... More

This beach has such variety of landscape, especially walking toward the north, you'll sometimes feel like you are on another planet.

a 30 minute drive from trancoso on a dirt road leads you to a stunning place: praia do espelho. the beach is divided by a small river. on the left side, praia do curuipe, which is nice and offers more bar/restaurant options, but it's more crowded during high season. on the right side, it's the true gem: the "real" praia...

one of my favourite beaches - it has it all. great people watching, lively beach clubs but you can walk further up the beach if you prefer peace and quite. Great sand and swimming and the sun never stopped shining.

One of the most beautiful places on the Braziiian coast. The water, the beach, the cliffs are all striking. There is a place called Pousada do Bahiano, by the beach, where we stopped for caipirinhas in the shadow of huge coconut trees, which looks magical.

A place not to be missed. It is distant from Trancoso but it is worth trip. Cristal clear sand and sea. Stay at one of the local pousadas if you can.
