  • Wonderful beach, quiet, and with an unforgettable landscape. The sea is clean and with crystalline waters. A great place to relax and renew your energies.

  • The beach is very beautiful. Because it is open sea, it has strong waves and that is with children should be attentive. Rio da Barra gives a charm to the place and offers a good option for bathing with children

  • The beautiful beach of Rio da Barra is located in Trancoso, and presents in each corner two distinct and beautiful landscapes. On one side we have coconut trees and Rio da Barra cutting the sand, and the other the famous cliffs, creating a beautiful look. Beach with calm waters and beautiful green tones. On the beach there is only one choice of tent/restaurant, which belongs to the Hotel Rio da Barra, with excellent service, sun umbrellas, wooden loungers, showers and clean bathrooms. The menu is not cheap and bar requires a minimum consummation of 80 reais per person, but in our way of understanding is worth due to the structure available.

  • Wonderful beach. Actually the Rio Barra river & lagoon is a bit more to the south than indicated at Google Maps, south of Rio da Barra Villa Hotel.
  • Go walking from Trancoso, it's like a 40 min walking but with incredible views. I saw a whale jumping in the ocean...And many turtles. Quiet and almost desert beach. Escapeland I would call.
  • Amazing beach
  • That was, in my opinion, the most beautiful beach in Trancoso. Too bad she's all alloted for private property. Getting in is a little bit annoying. It has an incredible cliff and a river that waters on the beach. She hardly has people and only a tent that charges an absurd of expensive.

  • Very beautiful beach, and for those who like tranquility, it is super worth it, because it does not get full of people. The only tent on the beach is that of the Hotel Rio da Barra, is private property, and therefore pays up to R $30.00 to enter the car. Some find it expensive, but it is the price you pay to be in a selected place and very beautiful. The landscape of the Barra River is beautiful, its warm waters and full of fish, the shades of the Orange River that blend with the green and the Blue sky create a unique sensation and allow wonderful pictures
