“Don´t go if you are not a good surfer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The sea is not friendly. It is very hard to stay in the sea because of the high waves. Prefer the other beaches around, specially Muro Alto.

“A Surfer's Point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

A little way from the central beach of Porto de Galinhas, the waves are higher and the sea is "angrier" , which makes a perfect place for surfers and keeps families with children away from the place. Needles to say it's a less visited place, so it's cleaner and both accomodations and food are cheaper than in Porto de Galinhas.
Mostly you get to see it in the Ponta-a-Ponta buggy ride, on your way back from Pontal de Maracaípe, but usually is a stop for lunch and you don't get to enjoy the beach.

“Good for surfing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

The sea is quite strong and the beach is not so nice as Muro Alto or Porto de Galinhas, but it's good for surfing.

“great ! surfers welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

this is a brach with sort of strong waves and dangerous for newbies. It is a surfer's beach with many bars but most quiet,
