This beach, although shorter than neighbouring Camburi, makes for a much more pleasant stroll. The surf is gentle, the sand fine, there are boats and islands to admire, shells to collect, and it is removed from busy Brito street by an expanse of grass and palm trees. And there are more barracas where you can eat and drink.

Dirty beach and water. Only nice if you would like to rent a kayak or other water sport equipment...

Run. Walk. SUP rentals. Windsurfing rentals and classes. Biking. Playground for kids. Good infrastructure. Parking areas. That's the best beach in Vitória .

Do not swim there, the water is polluted. If you wish, visit Camburi beach, and always look for the signs to see where it's safe to swim.

This is not a beach. It is sort of a marina with a horrible street art fair... It may be a good place to jog or to go for a walk nut do not come here expecting a beautiful beach,,,
