“Lovely beach!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Very pretty, good for swimming and surfing, manned by lifeguards.

Chairs and umbrellas to hire, lots of shacks for drinks and snacks, good beach restaurant, friendly cool surfing dudes and pretty girls! Good for people watching! Can recommend the coconut drinks and barbequed cheese on sticks from the man with the little mobile bbq. Lots of locals selling snacks and crafts but they don't pester you.
Word of warning - don't hang around after dark or walk into town after dark. Lots of reports of assaults and muggings at gun point from people by the surrounding favelas. They target tourists. Only carry small amount of cash. Take motor taxi (motorbike) or call for a taxi.

“Small and beautiful”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

It is worth to take a walk to see Tiririca Beach, with reefs at both ends, it's only maybe a couple hundred meters long, but beautiful. Lots of surfers go there as the waves seem to be good for surfing.There is a place for snacks and drinks as well as a restaurant. A few pousadas are close by, e.g. Tanara, Sage Point.
