  • The beach is beautiful, a true hidden jewel, which can be reached by hiking trails. The most popular is the one that starts on the beach of Pantano do Sul, near the bus stop. But I advise you not to visit in small groups or couples. In addition to the safety not being up to snuff, the back is quite steep.

  • I did this with my boyfriend and friends via Pantano do Sul. In my opinion the trail is pulled, has irregular stones and mtas is steep, has to go prepared (shoes, sunscreen, insect repellent, bring water and things to eat). Recommend making early, because tired mto do with strong sunlight. We haven't been to the Crown Hill why we feel the Bush v. "closed" and as it was very hot we were afraid of having snakes on the loose in the Woods. The descent to the beach is pretty bad, full of rocks, there's got to be careful not to twist your foot. The beach is beautiful and clean, has a beautiful pond full of fish and crabs. I found the sea very choppy, there are holes with strong fountain ... I loved getting good in the lagoon hahahah! On the way back, we chose boat (the trail in tired too), was agitated and to some extent scary, because we got rain with some rays crossing (but she was quick to shore South Swamp cost real 30 per person). In summary I will say that it's worth going to see this beautiful place, but come prepared. NOTE: there is no bathroom and you need to take your bag to collect your garbage!

  • The track is heavy, but very worth the effort. Important to take water, light clothes, closed shoes and a snack. To take advantage of well, better make a full day for the activity. It is possible to take a boat on the beach of "Swamp of the South", but no such experience. Attention, because the site is located within a conservation area, which requires greater care. Don't take animals, bring your garbage back, avoid making noise to scare wildlife and do not damage the vegetation.
