I went there in a weekend at low season, it was very nice, lots of people doing sports as surfing, paraglide and jogging. The beach is wavy, the sand is white, the water very clear and cold! Everything good!

Gorgeous water, beautiful beach, great waves, really nice locals. Near the rocks is a great place to take the kids to swim. Surfers love this beach, you can rent great boards with Nena at the Escola de Surf de Saquarema.

This is one of the best surf spots from Brazil. They have really good surfing during all year. This beach is also beautiful and not super crowded as the Rio de Janeiro ones

Serious surf on parts...... surfers heaven . In fact on the world championship circuit. Quiet during the week but busy most weekends in Summer. Places on the beach with calmer waters but sometimes cool even with summer temperatures in the 30's.

We were there right before Carnaval and it wasn't crowded and the water was warm and clear. The sand was next to perfect.

For sure the best waves of the state. At the left side of the beach near the site named point you can get long lefts and short but good rights with a east and sotheast swell. At the right side you can get really hollow...More

A igreja fica no centro , de onde vc estiver em Saquarema ou itauna vc consegue ver a igreja , que é a grande atração da cidade e se encontra no alto de uma ladeira na quina da praia . Um local cinematográfico !
