Calm place, nothing much to do at night. Beach bar closes at 5pm. Great place to be to avoid the crowds, but will be stranded for food should you choose to stay in the evenings.

Glorious beach. Clean, warm water, dramatic waves. Loved this beach more than just about any beach we've ever visited. We can't wait to return and stay at Pousada Maracamba again.
