“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Breathtaking... Go equiped with diving gear. The water is clear, with all kinds of coloured little fishes swimming around us. The access may be a little hard (many stairs through a crack on the tocky cliff that surrounds the beach) but the reward is awesome.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

unforgettable beach. We were completely alone for 2-3 hours in this magnificiant beach with cristal clear water and colored fishes swinming between your legs with only 20 cm of water. My 2 boys were playing with them they will never forget..

“Wonderful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Also known by Baia do Sancho, this beach was elected as the most beautiful beach in Brazil.
With calm waters of beautiful colors, and great visibility underwater, this beach is perfect for swim and snorkeling, where you can see many marine life.
You can reach this beach by feet, walking on a trail and going down a ladder through a crack on the rock or by boat.

“Most beautiful bay I ever saw”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

It is not just a bay ... it´s a bay that it´s a house of thousand of dolphins, so it´s a very unique place in the world. It´s a wonderful experience to be able to swim to such nice creatures.

“KNOWN THE BEACH N. 1 IN BRAZIL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

Go by boat and by car, both views are amazing and worth the effort.
Try to get a nice guide to show you the best snorkelling time and area (it makes a big difference!)
