  • Hot Beach to stay ... Sun, sea, fish and snacks with a beautiful view of the Kitsurf waves and tearing across the blue sky.

  • You have to make the buggy ride to see the beauty of this beach. I just don't recommend lunch at this beach because it is expensive and the food is terrible, especially at the point of support where tourism companies stop.

  • Praia do Cumbuco is a great option for those who don't want to go far from the fortress, because it is only about 20 miles from the capital. Beautiful beaches and bathing areas, such as the Barra do Cauípe and lagoa do Banana, in addition, become excellent choices, especially in the first half, when these areas are full because of the rains. Excellent hotels such as the Vila Galé Cumbuco, as well as condo for rent. And don't forget the unforgettable buggy ride.
