  • It is a beautiful beach, without a doubt. I'm talking geographically, of nature. But, impossible to stay there. Crowded, crowded, crowded. Too much noise, funk, loud music and loud people everywhere. A lot of dirt, anyway, wouldn't go back.

  • Great to spend an hour to see the lighthouse, and the square where there is a statue of Vinicius de Moraes and her poems.

  • The beach is very beautiful and with good structure. It gets pretty full on weekends. In the surroundings, there are good restaurants.
