  • A really beautiful beach! The surf was too strong for me but many people enjoyed it. There is a close-by hiking trail called Costão that is definitely worth the trip (1 hour round trip). 
  • The media always exports only Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, but definitely the Itacoatiara Beach more amazing stronghold RJ and the metropolitan region. Not to mention a "Deli/Bakery/lunch site near the beach that sells a wonderful ham and cheese bread. I don't remember the name now, but it's on the main street of access to Itacoatiara. Well worth getting to know the beach.
