Beautiful beaches and lighthouse

Worth the trip but some parts of the route are on very tricky roads even by Brazilian standards and you have to take the ferry if you come from Laguna

The place is one of the most cherished spot of the local surfers The acess is still a bit of adventure but already much better than a few years back. But still mind the sand traps !

Beware of the sand and wind on the way, there are even dunes. Traffic is troublesome in high season, but the view is worth it...lovely photos. There are plenty of places for beverages/snacks,...

After walking 10 kms thru very beautiful and lonely beaches, we reached the 'Farol of Santa Marta' and its town (for fishermen and vacationers).
