  • Beautiful beach, several bars to enjoy, especially at night. What displeased me, was the excessive trash near the beach, a lot of garbage on the streets.

  • Praia do Cumbuco is well beautiful, on the day we visited was too full of algae and the overcrowded restaurant, was a holiday. The lagoons are great.

  • A great place to stroll, double or family. Those need a raft as it has a well-accessible value and it is still possible to take a delicious bath in the sea. It's all good
