  • You arrive by the beach at 4km from Porto Galinhas, it is very nice walk walking, when you reach the pontal you can see the Union of Rio and Sea, so the water is not transparent. So I advise to go and return to Porto, there are parasols, we used the same ones because we went with children but it is not advisable. There is but a wide beach and the murky water. I advise returning with low tide as if you go up to the street and is much longer the way. You are interested in offering to see the sea horse through a jangadas that go down the river, not worth it, take a horse and put it in a jar with water to take pictures.

  • A beautiful place. A beach with little structure and little frequed but with a beautiful nature. It's worth knowing.
