Beautiful beach with a really family atmosphere. There is a roped off section for swimming which lets you be safe from boats or marine creatures. It's away from the crowds and town centre so bring supplies or try one of the beachside bars.

Such a nice place. Time stands still here. Clear water, silence, sun, beautiful beaches, what else do you want in life? It does not get much better.

Lovely, intimate, stayed at cabin-style /hut style lodging in jungle near beach. Loved it here. New Year's Eve and the locals' and Baianas celebrating and dancing to the Goddess of the Sea around bonfire make it especially exotic, entrancing and a not to forget experience. Bring flowers to make your own nighttime New Year's offerings.
