  • Beach without waves that with it to be very quiet with the children. The only problem is the structure to use the bathroom you pay 5.00 each person. Portions with affordable price.

  • It is a beach without waves, lagoon type because it has a reef that makes of containment towards the sea. To get to the reef to see the fish, if or if you have to pay 30 reais to cross in kayak or cross in Shangada. The worst of all is that the sand is black, I guess by the proximity to a refinery of oil that can be seen from the beach. We ate in Anne's hut, very rich but expensive.
