  • Love this beach and love that has everything from there. I've been shooting the beach, it was very quiet and had no problem.

  • Despite the high cost to visit and enjoy this beach is worth a lot of every penny spent! This place is a paradise beach access only through the Hotel Rio da Barra, which already charge parking Ordinance (R $30). The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant, the only option for lunch, is stunning. The food is expensive but of very high quality (we eat a stew that was delicious). The infrastructure of the beach that the hotel offers is exceptional. The landscape dispenses comments!!! ❤ ️ Despite the high cost to visit and enjoy this beach, it's worth a lot of spent! This place is a paradise. The beach access is only across the Hotel, which already charges the parking lot in the gate ($30). The Hotel is beautiful and the restaurant, the only lunch option, is stunning. The food is expensive but of high quality (we eat the "moqueca" that was delicious). The Beach that the hotel infrastructure offers you is exceptional. The landscape is remarkable! ❤️

  • One of the best sights of the region for a sea bath, to relax and to take the kids. I don't know if allow entry without being a guest at the hotel.

  • Wonderful beach. Actually the Rio Barra river & lagoon is a bit more to the south than indicated at Google Maps, south of Rio da Barra Villa Hotel.
  • Go walking from Trancoso, it's like a 40 min walking but with incredible views. I saw a whale jumping in the ocean...And many turtles. Quiet and almost desert beach. Escapeland I would call.
  • Amazing beach
  • Beautiful beach with the confluence of the Rio da Barra forming breathtaking scenery. Missing service with meals and drinks more for the tourist.
