Difficult to get to, need a 4wd if you take the track between the 2 beaches. Beach is clean sand etc , water warm. The parking area is filthy with garbage- bottles , cans etc. Lots of tamarind trees hence the name .

After disappointment at the Blue Lagoon (pretty, but no beach to speak of), we set our sights on making it to Praia dos Tamarindos for a picnic lunch and a swim. Unfortunately, our google maps route (possibly due to our navigator not paying attention) took...More

Despite the road, this beach is worth visiting and spending a day with family and friends. Good for kids and a great swim.
