Def one of my fav on the Island. Great surf spot, kind of "roots" beach bars with live music and great views.

Matadeiro beach is a cool place to go surfing or go swimming in the ocean. The beach is very flat and very, very clean. Perfect conditions for a great day on the seaside!

Gorgeous, and if I remember correctly, neighbouring Armacão is equally beautiful. Could spend a whole day here.

Stunning location with big Atlantic waves crashing in. People surfing. A place to be seen and photo-ed for sure!. Nice bars (although with varying prices) serving drinks and lovely fresh fried fish. (try the Espada!) Surrounded by green hills and rocy cliffs. Spent two days here relaxing and sunning ourselves - time has no meaning here. Sit back and soak... More

Beautiful beach. No access with car, but only 5 minute walk from nearest street. Good to swim. There was one restaurant on the beach. My daughter lived it, especially climbing on the rocks on the beach.
