This is less popular than it's better known cousin Amado and I didn't see any surfers at all but for ordinary beach lovers like me it was heaven. From the main road the car would take you to the hilll top right next to the long board-walk and steps all the way down. Then you'll cross the warm knee- deep water of the river with little fish darting to reach the actual beach. The view from the hill top with the Atlantic surf rolling in just glorious. The sand was fine and stretched endlessly. We went on a June afternoon and there were about 20 people in the whole beach. There is a beach bar with limited options. The waves are big and swimming not advisable unless you are a strong swimmer. The water was cold in June. Be prepared to encounter some Nudists if you are prudish but there is always plenty of space for everyone.
If you want peace and solitude then this is the place to be. The desolate beauty of the less developed West Coast along the natural park is breathtaking.
