I found this beach relatively quiet which was a nice change from the other beaches. When the tide went out we played football with the local kids which was a blast. It isn't regularly cleaned by the looks of things, but it wasn't dirty either.

The town leading to the beach is full of buggy jeep sales people and tea shirt shops. The beach had poor little donkeys dressed and painted for tourist rides. And the beach itself was rather dirty.

You cannot miss Cumbuco beach, that's what I was told and I agree. If you have only one day go to Cumbuco: dunes, nature, sand ski.

Cumbuco beach was pretty dirty and buggyride was expensive. It was lot calmer than Praia do Futuro, lesser vendors, so that good thing.
