If you are nearby of course you should not miss this beach… very clear water… early birds have less tourists… main season too crowded… but for a stop for 2-3 hours … yes to recommend.

Need to take some stairs to get down to it from the parking lot. The beach is very long, not much choice of food or drink places, but it's OK. Don't forget to stop at the Indian village on the way

Hello, All! I would love to visit Praia do Espelho, but I want to ensure I research everything as much as possible before booking my trip. I plan on AirBnB-ing it for the trip and want to know how I'd get from the airport to my arirbnb location, then back to the airport when it's time to go? I keep seeing "taxi' so with that, how much should I expect to pay out? Thank you all in advance!
