  • Went to purposes of January and the beach can be very cute but the dirt and the smell to trash that had it was all gruesome. The paradores have bathroom chemical that when you enter is worse that if outside public. The only thing salvageable is XUXA and LEANDRO cool two ice cream vendors

  • Even that would be a good beach for snorkeling, swim and for children. Water with temperature. Though surrounded by kiosks, to sit there to get table and parasol of them, all expensive, R$ 40.00 a portion of fries, fish, shrimp etc forget it unless you have a lot of money and don't value your money. If you have someone singing in the kiosk returned to the chairs want to charge cover charge, but before not warn about this. I advise you to ask before about, if only because the space on the beach does not belong to the bar, is public, they cannot charge, unless you were within the establishment and the singing also were inside. The amount of dogs walking and sleeping by the sands of the beach is disgusting, get a geographic bug or worse has great potential. If you need to go to the bathroom then things get complicated, or you're in a restaurant a little better, that from what I saw there was only one right at the entrance to the beach, or you're going to have to go in a Porta potty, from what I've seen the kiosks and bars smaller has no common bathrooms, only chemical toilets, I'm not even going to comment on them, think of something dirty and disgusting and multiply by 100. I advise you get smart with malicious people, taking care of your belongings, as is walked rogue might be lurking.

  • By having a large tree provides an area to spare quite sought after by those who don't want to spend all day in the Sun or that goes with children. Small strip of sand. It's at the end of a long Street, in the summer the keepers usually charge about 15 reais. There's not much trade around, just the restaurant of a hotel. But has various environments with all kinds of snacks, including a nice Argentina selling delicious Empanadas, worth a try!
