Obviously, if you go there when the tide is high, it’s a pretty normal beach, like millions of others, but when the tide is low, (make sure to check the times before venturing out there) the stunning natural pools are a sight out of this world, all the superlatives plus plus plus, defo one of the highlights of brazil, a total paradise for photographers, what an experience!!
Two things to be aware of;
The Jangada ride to the pools is A, heavily overpriced, as usual in Brazil, a total rip off, B, more importantly, they rush you thorough it and try to get you out of there ASAP. The amazing experience is marred by the guides who keep on pestering you to move on. While the truth of the matter is, if you come early enough in low tide, you can just walk across in the low level waters, even with a big professional camera to the where all the people are roaming around in the natural pools. You can take in the sights unhurried and see much more on your own pace. Save you Jangada experience to one of the many other beaches in the area, instead of supporting rip offs and bad service.
Beware of the touts that try and drag you to their chairs on the beach, promising you it’s for free, but then insist you order a main meal and if not, they charge you 40 reals per chair. Our lovely tout tried to add a parking fee, since we parked on the road near their chairs. I got to take off my hat for the originality, nice try. Basically, when they give you the bill, check every line, you are sure to find some skeleton there.
Nature wise, awesome, an un-forgettable experience.
