Deserted beach

The beach is entirely deserted and beautiful but signs warn of strong currents. Snorkelling is good.

Extremely beautiful being from the start. If you wait for the tide to come down you can even see these natural pools that are incrieble. Worth going

Gorgeous, long beach, near Sancho and the Dois Irmaos (Two Brothers). To the far left, there is a trail that will give you a beautiful view of the Dois Irmaos. Respect nature, and do not swim in the pools.

The beach is amazing, but the water is very agitated and not appropriate for bath. I recommend to visit the place only and take some pictures.

We took a taxi here, and then walked back to Sueste Beach afterwards to get a ride back. Probably a 10 minute walk to get down to the beach and another 15 to walk to Sueste. It is a really pretty beach to see though,...More

Very beautiful beach, but not swim friendly. There are lots of swells and it's very dangerous. Wouldn't recommend swimming there. Also, no shadows available.
