“It´s paradise!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Great views, unfortunately if not for swimming but great for surfing, however, it´s right next to the main Bahia in which you can swim.

“A beach for walking and surfing...”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

A great beach for a morning or evening stroll. This is not a beach for swimming as the surf and rip tide are too strong.

“Surf, surf, awesome bodies...and danger!!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The beach is a blast. That´s it. Nothing more to say. You are sorrounded by all these awesome bodies, girls and guys with their surfboards, aand this nice reggae atmosphere.

but all over you see signals telling you about the dangers of swimming here, tides, and stuff, I guess sharks too? and you kinda feel you need to stay alert.

On the overall, one of the best beaches I´ve ever seen in + 20 countries.

“impressive waves”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Big beach with lots of wave action, surfers and places to eat. We took off our shoes and walked along the water enjoying the sea air. Seems to be a favourite activity of others. Off season but still surfing season apparently.
