Clean sand and unspoilt. The sea was quite wild when we went but people were enjoying jumping waves rather than swimming but there were quieter times when you could swim.

I think this one of the most beautiful beach I'd visited. The water is clear, and the beach clean, with wonderful falesias quite near of the sand. I recommend carry a bottle of water if you like to walk long distances.

Any given beach in arraial is better than that. Horrible 8km of road to get there only to find it mega crowded with people, zero service at the bars. Do not recommend. Two stars cause the view is pretty good from the water looking in.

The beach is really beautiful with high cliffs colored from white to browns which makes an astonishing view! For the more adventurers, there are scenic paragliding flights from the cliffs to the beach. Very few (maybe two) beach bars are the only options at Taipe....More

Miles of golden sand, backed by red and white cliffs. The restaurant right by th car park was a little busy for us with quite loud music playing. We turned left and walked a couple of hundred metre and came to a really beautiful spot....More
