A short, nice boat trip during low tide, especially if you are into snorkeling. I recommend wearing water shoes so that you don't cut yourself if happen to step on the coral reef. The trip lasts for about 3 hours and costs about US$10.

It's OK to go there swimming from the beach, but don't expect great snorkeling and be VERY careful with all the boat traffic at low tide. I've found the boats noisy and a nuisance, but they must be OK if one can't go swimming and...More

You should really take a tour for Picaozinho. It is very beautiful and you can swim with colourful fish. Unfortunately, the weather for me was very bad so I did not enjoy it that much. However, take the chance and try it no matter what....More

Very nice natural pool, near the cost and cheap, a boat cost around 10$ USD, when visit such kind of natural pool always check the tide the ideal level is near zero, lots of soldier fishes, use sun block!!

Worth visiting the pools that are formed during low tide. It takes only 15 min to get to the pools from the beach. Was expecting to see more fish.

As my friends and I got closer to the corals we were amazed at the view. A mix with the light blue see and the red-orange coral reef. Adding to that the sun that João Pessoa has in a unique way. When visiting João Pessoa...More

Awesome!!! It is a 3 hours ride! The boats leave the tambau beach and they only take 30 min to get to the natural pools of Picaozinho. The only thing you need to plan, even before going to Joao Pessoa, it's the tie table! If...More

We could not move with the quantity of people around, no privacy at all! You have to take a boat during 15 minutes to arrive there.

If you enjoy snorkeling you will love Picãozinho. When the tide is low the boats take you to an area with some coral reefs that form natural pools. The water is nice and warm and there is plenty of fish to observe. You can rent...More

The boat ride and time over there worths the 30-35 reais ticket. For someone is used with snorkelling dive it may bring nothing surprising but since it's very close to the cityband there is easy access even for children or eldery, it may be very...More
