  • Our family hiked here after spending the night in Ponta Negra. It was a strenuous hike and took about two hours to get to the waterfall but was so worth it when we arrived. The view of the waterfall.....  more »

  • Hard and beautiful trail to get there, but then you will receive well deserved reward: beautiful nature, rocks, waterfall with small sweet-water lake just 5 meters above the ocean... Feeling like at the end of the world...
  • Vale a pena

  • To access it it is necessary to go to Vila Oratório, which is next to the Laranjeiras Condominium; this route can be done by private car or bus. By car, you need to pay for a parking lot, the residents approach us as soon as we enter the village. It costs from 20 to 30 reais. From there, vain leave 15 in 15 minutes that take free of charge to the Pier that is inside the Condominium. From the Pier, you have to pay for a boat to take to Ponta Negra. I paid 40 reais to go and another 40 to return, but the boatmen commented that the amount will increase to 50 from Carnival. In Ponta Negra you find the trail to Saco Bravo. It may be that someone approaches you to hire guide, but the trail is well signposted and anyone can do it alone. The trail is quite heavy, with steep climbs and sometimes it is difficult to breathe due to closed forest or thin air. Bring water and a good snack, because the effort is too great. If the water runs out, on the way there are points of springs that comes out a delicious and cold water. In addition, it is necessary to be aware of venomous animals, because some parts are in isolated forest. The whole walk is worth it, because the look is beautiful. As soon as you arrive, be aware of the force of the water; When the sea is rough, the water invades the waterfall and can drag you to the sea, which is deep and dangerous.
