There are some cool beach bars along Itapua Beach just a short local bus ride from Mar Brasil Hotel where we were staying. The beach itself is beautiful.

Itapua beach, sang in the verses of brazilian poets about its earthly peaceful paradise is certainly not the same anymore.

The Itapuã beach is famous because of a music, but the beach is not as beautiful as the music states. The sand has a strange color, the beach is full of rocks and the only thing nice is a walk to the lighthouse
