So beautiful and nice

This small beach is the perfect place to spend the afternoon and have dinner at the beach. A little bit too crowded at times, but a great place to have some fun.

We loved this tiny little beach. The walk down was beautiful. It was great to be able to see Joao Fernando from this quaint spot. We kayaked and paddle boarded. The food was great, too. And we were able to pick up an open wifi from the nearby hotel.

We are a young couple (29yrs) and live in Sydney and have traveled to many countries for their beaches. Our expectations of a good beach is not too commercialized, not too crowded, a nice quiet, clean and clear waters, shallow, calm conditions for swim and good surf conditions for surfing. As a diver, I would not even rate these beaches... More

This beach is truly delightful. Approximately 20 metres in depth it does tend too get over crowded especially at weekends. The size was the attraction for ourselves as a couple. The atmosphere is a nice blend of families, music and fun. The guys were superb with the levels of service with drinks and food. We chose Carlos who was superb... More

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!
