  • The old Lighthouse is little known, but their access is super easy and can be done walking or biking through bike path that leads to it. On the way there is a break with a swing the shade of a tree. The bike path entrance is next to the access to the gate of the Petrobras Beach Camper

  • On the edge of the Beach today with easy access, it's worth checking out the visual of the Imbetiba Beach, already destroyed by Petrobras.
