  • Beach safe as violence, sometimes you have to be careful enough hits to get in, do the coastline is the difference, take plenty of water, something to eat and a camera, go with light clothes, for some the trail can be considered moderate but she is light. Excellent beach.

  • The visit to this beach is very worthwhile. On the weekends it gets crowded so get there early to find parking. The sea is not always good to get in, but if you're lucky to go on a day of low tide will not regret it. For the more adventurous, at the end of the beach up the street do the Coastline of Itacoatiara and bananal Cove, both are great.

  • Itacoatiara, to me, is one of the most beautiful beaches of Brazil. Visual sensational, local stripped and always full of beautiful people.

  • Best for relaxing
  • linda!
  • Beach less urban and more reserved, without much structure on the sands. Are offered in the sand just tents, beach chairs and food and drinks from hawkers. If you want to sit down to eat and drink a few kiosks on the edge. Parking on weekends and holidays. But the beauty of the place, is a more intimate and familiar Beach primarily in prainha. This beach tbm there are the possibility to make two trails to explore wonderful views, bananal Cove and the rock of the coastline.

  • Best beach in Niterói. For those who like waves is great and for those who don't like it, there's Prainha. Do the track to climb the cliffs is must for those visiting the beach.
