    -The entrance is at Km 69.5 BR 101. The road is two-way and paved to the beach. It's narrow, but quiet. On the right side of the beach, after going through a trail of about 5 minutes, has a natural pool, where there are many fishes, if you take a little piece of bread will pop up a lot. But go in the morning to get leverage, as the tide rises and even back is difficult. Then go to 8:00 the 11:00-Has some kiosks and a restaurant. But during the week were closed.

    The beach is hard to reach, you pass by a mini-serra but when you get surprised! It's worth going in a day with plenty of sunshine, because at the end of the beach has a small trail that leads to a natural pool where you see many fish, clear water very beautiful sight, take more water to drink because you don't sell anything in the natural pool.

    We know that beach and we were delighted. Access is easy, following plates and asking for information to confirm if we were on the right track. We left the car in the parking lot very close (less than 100 MTS away from the area) and paid (R $15.00 with shower). There we had personal guidance how to get in the pool that forms between the rocks and that with luck see if fish. By the time and the beautiful day that was, we found very busy and couldn't attract the fish as I wanted, even taking old breads. The tide rises very fast and we thought it best to go back to the common area of the beach. Cowes until to confer this attraction that so many mention.

Where to stay in Ubatuba

Ubatuba's accommodations mainly stick close to the water, where major hotels along coastal roads offer both simple and luxurious rooms, with or without a view. Budget-conscious travelers may wish to explore the more humble pousadas (guesthouses) of the town, with a good choice throughout, coming down in price as you move away from the water. Consider an apartment rental for longer stays; or, if you're anxious to get out into the national park and mountainous areas of the municipality, try the campsites on the outskirts of town.
