As nice as the 4th, it's a good place to rest and relax. Warm waters, few waves and a staggering view.

I prefer the 4th beach because it is cleaner but this beach is good for those pics which portray you alone on a big white sand deserted beach. There are two or three hotels if you want to stay there but It is too far to walk anywhere else.

I read many comments here that this beach is amazing. I tried to walk till there from the first beach and is too, too far way, then I took the "horse taxi". 50 reais both ways for the couple. On the way u pass trough very dirty landscape, unfortunately the turists don't respect and the government doesn't do nothing to... More

The Quinta Praia is the beach that is further out from the village in Morro de Sao Paulo and it is therefore the peaceful one. When the tide is low the beach is huge with plenty of natural pools, tidal pools, warm water and almost no waves.

It's far from the village, and it is a quiet, beautiful place to be. Sea is beautiful but be careful with jelly fishes.

Encanto is removed from the rest of the main action spots on Morro de Sao Paolo. The drive from Encanto to Segundo Praia takes about 20 minutes. This makes certain that Encanto is almost always deserted - heavenly. Beautiful thick sandy white beaches (sometimes the tide goes back out for over a mile) with lovely warm water. Robin Crusoe would... More

A lost paradise in earth. Go for a tour in Ronaldo's boat to the natural pools. The best hotel in the area is Villa Dos Orixas

the sand was soft and the palm trees are adorable. I enjoyed the warm shallow water and trying to catch the weird clear fish. This is my favorite beach on the island.
