Beautiful and quiet beach. No restaurants, no shade, just the perfect beach. You´d better take an umbrella and some snack to enjoy your day there.

Gorgeous, long beach, near Sancho and the Dois Irmaos (Two Brothers). To the far left, there is a trail that will give you a beautiful view of the Dois Irmaos. Respect nature, and do not swim in the pools.
