  • The beach is quiet and good for swimming in favorable weather conditions. In addition to clean, it's beautiful in your immensity blue, "hidden" between mountains. It's my favorite of the moment.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of the North of the island, lies between the Brava Beach and Ponta das Canas. Small sand track gets crowded in season when the city is a little less crowded to see the beauty of nature, the water is always clean and transparent. The lack of education of some regulars have left the beauty of this beach and given way disputes between sound gazebos on the edge sea, very unpleasant.

  • The beach is very beautiful, has pale water, however in high season it's hard to find space in the sand, in the carnival then harder.
