The beach is clear and the waves are little stronger. Many people,l drinking beer, under umbrella, few sellers in the sand. Strong sun. Praia limpa, pessoal curtindo o sol sob sombrinhas e bebendo cerveja. Sol forte, mar um pouco agitado!

The beach is wide and clean and fun for surfing or sunning or walking. There are a variety of restaurants available along the street next to the beach, and umbrellas are available for a minimal charge. It's a great place to relax.

Brava Beach offers clean sand, and warm water. Restaurants are close by along many stretches of the beach. Colored flags let you know if it's safe to swim.

There were not many people when we visited so we felt as though we had the beach to ourselves. The beach itself is clean and safe. Reminded me of the Gold Coast in Australia.
