Commom beach in Brazil. Has a good water to bath and play. Lots of good restaurants around across the street. It is usually not crowed beach. I feel safe while i was there. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent if you do not have yours.

Praia do Gonzaga is my favourite beach under the sun. The white sand is like a powder, the building behind and relatively clean ocean. What else do you need? Ok. maybe beautiful woman, but I don't have to mention about brazilian girls :)
