I prefer the 4th beach because it is cleaner but this beach is good for those pics which portray you alone on a big white sand deserted beach. There are two or three hotels if you want to stay there but It is too far to walk anywhere else.

The Quinta Praia is the beach that is further out from the village in Morro de Sao Paulo and it is therefore the peaceful one.

This makes certain that Encanto is almost always deserted - heavenly. Beautiful thick sandy white beaches (sometimes the tide goes back out for over a mile) with lovely warm water. Robin Crusoe would... More

A lost paradise in earth. Go for a tour in Ronaldo's boat to the natural pools. The best hotel in the area is Villa Dos Orixas

the sand was soft and the palm trees are adorable. I enjoyed the warm shallow water and trying to catch the weird clear fish. This is my favorite beach on the island.
