The village of Dois Rios is a bit scrappy, with quite a few abandoned old houses and not much going on (Saturday afternoon in March). The day we were there is was cloudy and the beach was empty. It looked like a scene from prehistory....untouched and quietly very beautiful. We were looking for lunch and stopped in front of a sign that looked like an ad for a restaurant and a young man lead us several blocks away to the back yard of what was probably his mother's house. She cooked a very nice lunch of fish and rice for us in her outdoor kitchen. There is a museum at the old prison, but unfortunately it was closed during our visit.
The walk to Dois Rios is on a dirt service road, so the path is wide and you can't miss it. We heard howler monkeys on our way over and back, but never saw them. There are no boats from this beach unless you can get a fishman to give you a ride. We felt in general the town was worth a visit, especially if you want to spend time on a beach where there won't be many others and enjoy a nice simple local lunch.
