  • Very beautiful extensive beach, clear waters, various inns, some places with trees facilitating parking

  • Very beautiful beach. Excellent scenery to enjoy and photograph. For the bath, things get complicated. The waves hit a lot and pull a lot. For surfers, great. Now for us clumsy bathers, it gets complicated. You can't get wet more than the shins. And that's not a problem, of course. Only a finding and a warning for those who are to know the region, especially for those who are with children. And for these, a few minutes walk towards the church, you arrive at Praia da Barrinha which, yes, is quiet, with large shallow stretches, which make the joy of the soft boy and all else.

  • The beach of Itaúna is wonderful, but it is not a beach to play with, it is dangerous. But I love her. 😎😎😎

  • I love this beach. There's a rough sea part and another with rocks where you can stay in the water all day with the kids. The Itaúna girl is a great option to eat.
