I have enjoyed this beach in 2012 and 2013. It was full of baracas, nice atmosphere. Now, especially on weekends, the beach is full, dangerous, and a lot of rubbish remains in the sand. People who used to take care of baracas are not cleaning up anymore. We didn t feel safe. On our way back on the Orla that has been refurbished, there was some shooting. Police was there with horses, didn t do anything.

The stretch of beach is just mind blowing. Miles of untamed ocean and not too many people around, and the ocean at its best.
Good strong waves, maybe not for surfing,but a nice place to just spend some time staring at the sea by yourself before you decide you want to tackle the waves yourself.
not too far from Itapua & Vermulho for a nice evening drink.

We went there to find a good beach. Everything was fine until we saw the bill . They wanted us to pay 10€ for the waiter and 15€ just for using the table and the chairs on the beach . They also added in the bill things we never ordered.
I asked some locals and they told me that this beach is a trap for tourists .
So ask before you seat on a chair .

It was once a beautiful and nice beach, the best to swim in my opinion, but last time I was there I was disappointed to see how dirty it was, there was trash all over it. I have to add that I had my bag stolen there about 5 years ago.
