“The family all time favourite”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

My family and I just love this beach and we have been here many times. When the kids are small, the river was the big thing. When older they enjoy the forcefull waves with pleasure.
Take a walk north at low tide, after crossing the river you we get to some rocks. Her you can see small fish trapped in pockets with water. Also great for bathing and collecting shells. Still my small daughters (7 years) favourite place.
Go south on the beautifull beach all the way to Diogo (Santo Antonio). You can either walk or run (mind the heat and the sun). At low tide the sand gets very hand and it is just PERFECT for barefooted running. This is my hands down world wide favourite running track - Imbassai to Diogo and back makes about 12km.
Many great barraccas - and the best one is Barraca do Baixinho. Go there and enjoy the perfect food and superior service. Send my greetings to owner Baixinho and head waiter Mario (you cant miss him). Just say hello from the Danish guy.
I am going back in a week and I am looking forward to see how the new Barracas are proceeding. All Barracas will be removed from the river.

“Would be perfect without the garbage”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Some barracas serve up tasty seafood, with wonderful views. My favorite was just north of our pousada. Waves aren't as strong as they appear, at least not next to the beach, though there's a pretty strong current.

“Great place to rest”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Very wide beach, not windy, with only people from the hotel (Grand Palladium). Good service in the hotel bar, and you have trees to hide from the sun and rest.
