This beach was very nice, and it's definitely a place you have to visit and see for yourself, but you have to be careful not to leave things unattended as people won't hesitate to take things away very, VERY quickly. It's one of the issues of tourist spots in Brazil I suppose.

Good beach to swim, water is really warm. this beach is protected by a coral wall that's why it looks like a swimming pool but be careful with sea urchins.

Muro Alto is an extraordinary beach, almost private for those who are at the resorts in the area. The water is warm, however you should be careful with the coral reefs, because of the sea urchins that are very common there. Almost at the end of the beach there´s a very nice area in front of Nannai Resort Hotel where... More

As the name indicates, this beach is protected by a wall of corals. As result it is like a swimming pool of warm seawater. There are several kiosks serving food and drinks. Expect a place crawded with tourist and locals. Loud music all day long.

It is a good beach, specially for families with kids. The sea is in fact a swimming pool. Clear and warm. It is protected by a reef. Ideal for stand up paddle! You have to by a ride with a taxi or "bugge". There is no infrastructure, like potable water to take a shower. And the local bars are limited.... More

Our dune buggy stopped here for lunch. There were a few restaurants (quite literally) in the beach. You can have your lunch whilst sitting in the water. You can swim out to the reef or take a kayak - we just sAt and relaxed.
