  • View the sunset here is fantastic. However the last bar we were they close around 16hrs. And the only bar in the Pontal, the values are absurd.

  • We know the place for the fame of the sunset really, something that all Brazilian citizens should do once in your life. Pity that only have a bar on site and the exploitation is inevitable. Other than that, enjoy the nature, the calm of the delicious water is something inexplicable.

  • A wonderful place to accompany the sunset or bathe in rock pools at low tide. Well-preserved, clean and little frequented. Worth visiting by Buggy or walking along the beach of Maracaípe. It's about 3 km from the beach of Porto de Galinhas for the edge.
