Beautiful clean beach. I took a bus from Cafo Frio to the Prainha. About $2 one way. The bus left us right by the hill. The scenery on the bus was beautiful

I have been here a few time, once I stayed at the Ocean View Hotel which is right on this beach. I especially like this beach during the week, much less crowded. Piranha Beach offers a spectacular view of pristine waters. Love this beach!!!!
