Amazing beach of white snowlike sand is quite busy but beautiful nevertheless, the water is cool but not freezing. Definitely a great place to hang out and relax and not worry about your shape and size

I have been to many different places in Brazil. I had never seen such a wonderful beach. The combination of white sand, crystal water and rocks is very special. Can't miss it.
