  • Limited access by the beach pontal, only appears with mare, but good for low of surfing, a beauty without equal.

  • Sali of praia grande and it took me an hour, approximately, to get to Praia Brava, went walking agile step and I stopped several times to take picture. Begins with the cobblestone Street that goes to As Prainhas, they are about 700 meters away at a 35 degree angle. Later, when the road forks to the small beaches and praia brava there are other shortest but steepest ascent. Above there is a pousada, I called Tantomar... The pavement ends and starts a staircase of stones type of Praia do forno, in descent, steeper, where you are going over a cliff. A walk between the nose, then she is walking a few final 200 m between the stones and you will arrive. It is not for everyone. I went from flip flops and cellulose in hand! and only! At times I seemed, stones were wet and if you patinas you end up in the water, prior to break his head against the stones... Let me clarify for which plan to go and read this... In the stones you have to take precautions... I highly recommend sneakers, water bottle, do not go alone. Perform to maq. photographic, the views are beautiful... I arrived at 8 o'clock in the morning, there was no one. High tide left a beach of 30mts from the front by 40mts of depth...

  • From the entry of the island from Japanese take the trail to the left and walk for about 30 minutes. A quiet walk. The brave beach is the beach of surfers and the end of her nude beach! The sea is very agitated with strong waves and the beach is very beautiful with some interesting rock formations. I really enjoyed the privacy and beauty of the place.
