a 30 minute drive from trancoso on a dirt road leads you to a stunning place: praia do espelho. the beach is divided by a small river. on the left side, praia do curuipe, which is nice and offers more bar/restaurant options, but it's more crowded during high season. on the right side, it's the true gem: the "real" praia do espelho: a beautiful beach with calm green sea, cliffs surrounding it and no infra-strucure at all. no umbrellones, no chairs, no bars. if the sun is escorching (and during summer it is), you'd better go to one of the three fancy places located there, all of them separated from the beach by the small river.
silvinha, great thai restaurant with a gorgeus laid-back decoration, needs reservation and there's not a place to hang out while you're at the beach.
sushi da mel is just the same (and belong to silvinha's daughter), although with even a more relaxed atmosphere..
fazenda calá (divino) is a lovely boutique hotel with a bar by the small river. the space is realy nice and offers the best condition to enjoy the beach, the river and the bar.
expects to pay top dollar on any of them.
anyway, espelho is a great daytrip, but plan it in advance to get the most out of it.
