It Is the "gate of paradise." Transparent waters surrounded by beautiful coconut palms. Silence and breeze soothe your soul. There are hotels to all standards and are spread out in these pieces of paradise. It is necessary that this type of tourism has its sustainability guaranteed by government policies, so that the "door of paradise" would be protected from real... More

Our guide took us there after we visited São Miguel dos Milagres natural pools, the later one, a bit disappointing. However this beach was surprisingly good. There's a new restaurant called Recanto do Coral offering beach service with new chairs and parasols. They also have clean toilets and showers.

the chairs at the beach are cheap. The bar that rents them is a little bit slow. But as this is brasil there are enough venders on the beach.

We took the van to São Miguel dos Milagres, which was told to be 1 hour and 10 minutes.....but in fact it was too far away....2 hours on a Bad Road. I don't recommend.

We visited as the tide was leaving. The water is amazing, super clear. Great place to sit and enjoy the sun or the water.

It is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. Also, the sea it is really calm, so I do not have to worry with big waves and stuff like that.

I choose to visit São Miguel Dos Milagres because I was looking for a beautiful and tranquil beach in Brazil. If you are the kind of person who likes to be in an almost desert place, São Miguel can offer you that! Additionally, the place has simple but very cosy and good service b&bs. I visited the place in Jun15,... More

Was a waste of a day and money this one for us. Beach is protected so the restaurant is a bit of a walk from the sand, the trip to see the Manatees was a waste of money and time also with only a couple of noses showing above the water. Apparently its better during summer but I wont be... More

Beautiful beach, great infrastructure with awesome stores but the place is too crowded. If you don't have issues about competing for any significant space on the beach you will enjoy the place.
