  • I stayed near this beach and I said that it knew, came to half tomorrow and we stayed until the sunset. The best thing was free, enjoy a beach crowded but not overcrowded eating several Beach carts offer, swim in warm and translucent waters, and lean back in fine sand, a paradise and a unique relaxation. We returned to walking as 2 hours and not feel it. Do not miss it.

  • Is a place ideal to be in family, quiet and zone more secure that Ipanema and Copacabana, to enjoy its beaches with good waves
