I'm very glad I made the effort to get to this beach but it was an effort and not suitable for all. We arrived on a cruise ship so it was a busier day but the beach was still very quiet and beautiful. There were 3 or 4 vendors there to get drinks and crisps, not much choice but ok.
It requires a taxi boat ride from the town to get to a nearby beach and then a walk/hike. The taxis were very organised and it was easy to get there and negotiate a time back in a shared boat with others. There is a nice looking bar on a pier on the beach where they drop you but we didn't have time to go in it. The issue is the "walk" once you have been dropped off. It took us 25 mins and wasn't at all easy as it had rained the day before. I imagine it would be much easier if totally dry but after rain it was very muddy and slippy and it isn't on the flat, its uphill then down hill on a dirt path and I feel you have to be reasonably fit to do it in these conditions. That said it was worth the awkward hike (and this is why its a quiet unspoilt beach!). Be aware that it is through the jungle so there are lots of mosquitos and you should cover up and wear repellant, we were told when in Rio that a number of people staying on the island have caught yellow fever, I'm not sure how accurate this is. I wasn't worried as I had got the vaccine while at home.
