It's OK to go there swimming from the beach, but don't expect great snorkeling and be VERY careful with all the boat traffic at low tide. I've found the boats noisy and a nuisance, but they must be OK if one can't go swimming and...More

You should really take a tour for Picaozinho. It is very beautiful and you can swim with colourful fish. Unfortunately, the weather for me was very bad so I did not enjoy it that much. However, take the chance and try it no matter what....More

Very nice natural pool, near the cost and cheap, a boat cost around 10$ USD, when visit such kind of natural pool always check the tide the ideal level is near zero, lots of soldier fishes, use sun block!!

Worth visiting the pools that are formed during low tide. It takes only 15 min to get to the pools from the beach. Was expecting to see more fish.

If you enjoy snorkeling you will love Picãozinho. When the tide is low the boats take you to an area with some coral reefs that form natural pools. The water is nice and warm and there is plenty of fish to observe. You can rent...More

It's a natural pool around 0.5 mile into the sea. Nothing special, but it is nice to swim in a sunny day.
