  • The river bar and a beautiful beach more unfortunately the only access by car and a private entrance. La they warn that to stay on the beach have a minimum consumption of Rs100. The hint: better go up since the Pitinga Beach, but only do when the tide this low because there are some rocks before the beach and with the high tide not to go or come back!

  • Beautiful beach, with amazing cliffs and a river meets the sea. This River is shallow and clear, and it is common for tourists sitting on his bed when the weather is nice. It's beautiful to see, this beach is a little far from Arraial (+-30 min), then it is necessary to go by car or go through a travel agency (has several Mucugê Street on), and the ride be combined with a visit to the square of Trancoso. Only downside is that there is only one place for meals. It's a restaurant installed on the beach, whose minimum consumption is R$ 50.00 (was in September/2016). I found it a little expensive, but just lunch easily reaches this value. Nevertheless, I think it is very worthwhile to make the trip.

  • Beautiful beach, but all the stalls and restaurants charge minimum consumption and very expensive. Worth the swim. In fact, the waves are a little strong more in the afternoon.

  • Excelente local... Rio e mar juntos com uma natureza exuberante... Ficar no restaurante/hotel pois eles conservam muito bem o local, embora cobrem consumação mínima alta
  • O rio que corre para o mar é um local a parte, excelente para se banhar após a água salgada.
  • Eu adorei esse lugar é mui
