    Beach restricted to people in the bar, it's super cute, the service is very good. Needs to be consumed $80 per person, but it's worth it.

    Very nice place, with much forest that reaches the sea with fantastic landscapes when low tide and river and pools of river view.

    Forget everything you have seen to this day in Arraial and Trancoso, 9 times here and had not visited this wonderful beach. Stop complaining that charge 30.00 any other beach parking 15.00 and snake isn't half of what is the Rio da Barra, stop complaining that charge 80.00 of consumption per person, because we spent so long in other beaches. The location is unique, Yes. The hotel on the site, divides your beach structure with visitors for the day, that is, everything is first, chairs, cabanas and lounge chairs, bathrooms and service. The visual of the River with the sea is amazing, the beach is deserted and, without or curious passers-by walking. At most, your is attended by hotel guests, couples and families, is not a place to see and be seen. The sea depending on the tide, are more agitated, but is not dangerous, but there are those who prefer to bathe in the river. Think on this beach as the icing on the cake in your trip, you won't regret it.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
