Paradise Beach !

That's my preferred beach as a local... Great beach to learn surf, very friendly people, and very clean as well.

When we came here during summer few months ago, oh it was so crowded but still a nice beach to have a swim or a nice walk. Lovely!

This is one place you would want to go if you're into adventure sports like surfing. The waves are high but near the beach is calm. Also nice place to walk along the coastline enjoying the sand underneath your feet.

I spend an afternoon there. First I took the boat at Lagoa da Conceiçao which is worth it because the views on the hills are very nice and also it is different that to go by bus. Then i went to do stand up and canoe, it was crowded but not too much which was good for the season. I... More
