  • São José de Ribamar is a cozy town that deserves a visit. It is in the style fishing village, with a "footprint". It's worth it.

  • Nice beach. Just notice the TripAdvisor family that, if possible, keep an eye out for hygiene in handling products there offered. Only mineral water. Run a legend, that the old church when it was built the front was to the side of the city. Fell. Made a few more attempts and fell again. Only had support up to today, when they decided to build with the front facing the sea. Another curious factor is that almost all men have the surname RIBAMAR. is Ribamar to everywhere. Even Jose Sarnei.

  • If you like beaches where the sea is calm, no waves? This is the place! the beaches here are no waves, super calm, not deep, but that doesn't mean to not care about and go to away swimming, not because it's sea and sea is treacherous, the motto is always alert ok.
