My fiancee took me to this beach back in December '16 and I was simply awestruck by the simple natural beauty of the place. Hardly a soul around, and the weather was perfect. We found tidal pools to relax in, pristine beaches to walk on, and quaint little beach bars where we could sit and enjoy a cold beverage. Time... More

Wonderful beach, with very few people, even during summer. Good for swimming specially in the low tide.

My favorite beach at Litoral Norte.If you are in Imbassaí,you can take a bus or drive until there around 15 min.There are some tents selling typical food and you can enjoy this beautiful paradise.

Beautiful beach. Requires car to get to. Dirt road to access beach. Good snacks in improvised local people bars by the beach.

This is the quietest beach between Praia do Forte and Costa de Sauipe. Great for solitude surf and sea view. You will encounter donkeys and goats from the village. It is a perfect place to be idle. Access is also a little difficult. Follow the signs from the village. Beach access is good for people who like to Hike especially... More

When you arrive there, it is like you are in a movie. This village kept regional life and cultural. All village floor is covered by natural sand. You can see "jegue" walking freely on the "streets". There is one main tend in the middle of the village, where customers from all restaurants eat. Simple people and typical inner beach village.... More

Go to this place, if you'd like to see the real way people live in the inner beach cities of Bahia. This village is a travel to the regional culture. Try the "moqueca" there. Nature and simple life. Beach is amazing.

This is where you have to go if you want to enjoy something more primitive and less touristy. The beach is beautiful, strong waves and only a walk away from the parking and restaurants. Locals depend on the tourism here and you will find art crafts and local food served in the tiny village. Certainly a place to enjoy peace.

This is really an ideal beach for kicking back. Note that both waves and current can be pretty rough at times. Also note the perfect walk/run to Imbassai and back make about 12km. Note at low tide the sand is very hard and just PERFECT for barefooted runnig. My all time world wide favourite running strech is an early morning... More
