One Of The most beautiful beaches i ve ever been. Very quiet during the week, so we can enjoy the sound of the beach, trees and the wind. Good place to relax and have lunch or have a Drink.

You can easily walk to this beach from the village, walking straight down Travessa 14 right to the end, passing a gate. You come past simple houses, peple doing the daily activities etc and will probably see buffalos once you pass the farm gate. The...More

The Barra Velha beach is not to far from the town of Soure. You can walk on the main beach in the low tide hours or walk over the pathway in the high tide hours. I did the pathway even with the tide low, because...More

There is a nice suspended track made for motorbikes that ends on the beach. It also makes a very good walk. If you go early in the morning you will find the beautiful red guarás (a local bird).

Less people makes this a lovely quiet option. We cycled for miles along, watching the wildlife and wallowing in the shallow waters (watch out for Rays). There is excellent fresh fish at some of the barracas and cheap strong caipirinhas.
