A good all rounder
Feb 2019
Ferrugem is a beautiful beach with everything going for it, beauty, often sheltered from the prevailing winds, great surg and great people watching in high season. There is a fun beach bar, called Zado, but be warned it can get really busy in high season with a generally young crowd.

Perfect beach with little kids
Dec 2017 • Family
The beach has beautiful fine sand and is connected to a lagoon, ideal from young children. In between the beach and the lagoon, the rock formation creates natural pools of warmer water. Easy to access with kids but parent supervision is a must. The huge waves from the ocean come in quite strongly. Bring lots of sunscreen, there is little shade.

Beautiful beach, busy in carnival
Feb 2017
This beach is really natural. Lots of surfing around. In carnival it gets super crowded as Ferrugem is one of the carnival spots of the region. At this time the town gets lots of visitors mainly from Brazil and Uruguay. There are parties in the streets at night and even in the day the party goes on, but in the beach! There are groups of people wearing costumes, music and drinks. Great for people under 30s. Overall the town is simple, so don't expect any luxury accommodations, although there are some houses for rent that are really nice. I believe shared accommodation called "pousadas" are the popular choice.

One of the best beaches I've ever visited
Mar 2017 • Couples
Stunningly beautiful place to just watch the waves roll in, though of course it's also great for swimming and surfing. Parts of the beach are fine for kids, from what I noticed. There are surfing lessons available, an excellent beach bar, and beautiful walks to be had. The water and sand are both clean and gorgeous. There's a small lagoa (lagoon) if you walk down to the end, connecting this beach with Barra - another astoundingly beautiful spot. You can also walk up the rocks for unbelievable vantage points, and connect to a trail at the end of Barra to go even farther. Ferrugem (the town) is very chill with many pousadas and restaurants to visit!

Beautiful Beach
Mar 2017 • Couples
The sand is like fine, white sugar and the beach is great for walking. There is a hill with a trail to climb up for a view. The two beaches are divided by a stream of warm water from the Laguna. One end of the beach is where the surfers catch big waves. There are strong currents when the surf is big. Talk to the lifeguards before swimming to find out how to avoid rip currents. The stream is like a spa treatment... lay in it and feel the warm fresh water flow over you.
