  • A missed ride take you by boat although you can send it in a kayak, I would not buy excursion x 15 actual take you up to the place and walking already know tb the maracaipe which is beautiful and ideal for surfing beach. The best sunset seen from pontal

  • This beach is beautiful too, super quiet and calm, with few people, and unforgettable beauty. Definitely a tour that you can't stop doing

  • This place is located at the mouth of a river, is very good place for a good bath, since there are not so many waves, the water is warm and going to the side of the River at 17 pm approx is the sunset which is a show that would be a sin not to go see him, beautiful. It has a few nice bars probably for drink, or eat, but carry Thermo and Matt and ready. This place has a ride that is to see the sea horses, take you on a shangada and magic shows, don't miss it. The walk and back already is a rewarding experience, since the view is amazing, do not hesitate to go.
