    A pity, but the sewage runs through the middle of the beach, amidst the bathers. Out the bad smell the beach is crowded with vendors. But on the other hand has a cool infrastructure. Busy beach and with police patrols which generates a little more comfort in view of violence reported against tourists.

    I enjoyed the beach, is one of the busiest in the city, because it is located in the city center. Has a good infrastructure, sell all around, both on the part of the beach vendors, as in handicraft, shopping La Plage and other shops nearby. The waters are a little hectic, but no problem if it's not too much in front of the sea. I noticed the presence of some beggars on the edge of this beach, but the police seemed to be effective, and not witnessed anything unusual.

    Pitangueiras is a quiet beach but unfortunately the Sun hides at 15, because of the buildings that make shade on the beach. In winter prices remain very expensive, even walking carts are overreacting in prices. Result: 99% of people take their drinks and snacks from home. If you want to Sun by the end of the day, go to another beach.
