  • Best beach in Saquarema, rough seas but quiet sands. Great place to relax, without danger, peaceful, friendly people, with restaurants nearby.

  • Be on the beach of Itaúna, it's like taking a trip the crystalline waters and greenish in the country. Comparing with something outside, reminds me of the Caribbean. Short the off-season when quiet and without much eh people.

  • A great beach with a wide strip of sand. There's also a Sea with a canal with sea water entering the pond which is located right next to the beach, and at the foot of the Church, which is very famous. Some days, the sea is agitated and is bad to take a shower, but the day I went was great! I was very close to the Sea and break had a sandbank where it was like a swimming pool was very good and gave it to enjoy a lot. Super recommend!

  • Good placa for surfing
  • Depending on the time of year the sea will be a delight, with little wave and not too cold. But normal is that has strong waves and low temperature. Great for surfers.
