It's nice that there are many restaurants that line this long stretch of beach. The chairs & umbrellas are complimentary but you must eat at the over-priced restaurants. This beach is not as quaint as Azeda and Ossos, for example.

I reach this beach hiking the rocks from Joao Fernando beach. I burned my feet, but it was an amazing view. To go back to Joao Fernando beach I used the stairs of the hotel that is in the middle of these beaches.

Not easy to get a spot to sit in this beach, especially during holiday season & weekend. Since I just wanted to sit and relax, I found this beach was too packed! But it gave variety choices for my teenagers..stand up, kayaking, around floating boat. The restaurant was good..Bbq fish & calamari were fresh. Overall..my kids were happy!

Even considering small beach, you ll have a good time one. The beach have bar and caipirinha to drink. The sea is more hot then another beach around it.

Bordered by restaurants. Chair/umbrella rental only about $12/day, and food or drink purchase applies toward it. Good swimming.

Beautiful swimming beach where the ocean is calm and you can relax on the water. The instalations on the beach are great and supply anything you may need but be aware that it`s an expensive pleace! If posible, take some food with you!

There were too many people and with high tides, there are no room for anyone, leaving that aside, it´s a beautiful place and very good snorkelling 50m away from shore.

This very small and calm beach has clear water with no waves, perfect for those who seek tranquility. Good for children too.
