Gorgeous beach!

Be ready to climb up and down to the most beautiful beach in Brazil. Lots of stairs, excellent snorkeling - we saw a huge eel swimming and trigger fish too.

The most beautiful beach I've ever visited so far. The water is crystal clear and it's perfect for diving or snorkeling.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've been. All the nature around and the ladder is much easyer than it seems. I am 50 years old and I found it very easy. But don't go if you don't have much time to appreciate.

Spectacular beach. The ladder is easy going up and down - don't be afraid! Tour groups can be crazy, so go later in the day to avoid crowds.

This was a pretty beach especially from the above view, but probably not the World's Best and maybe not even the islands best. (Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos is a much more relaxing beach for a vacation if you are deciding between the two.) Unfortunately, we got caught in a couple of bad waves and were taken under when the...

Now.. let's be clear about something first..the beach is not ugly, but it's just a beach, come on people (Brazilians)! it's just a tiny rather common looking beach!!, I've seen better beaches before, any beach in the caribbean or Polynesia looks better than this and I don't even think it's the best beach of Brazil, some beaches at Pipa in...
