This place was definitely the most beautiful I have seen in the island. Breathtaking. There are two options to reach the beach: Pantano du Sol and Mataidero trails. The first one it is up hill, it takes about 30 minutes to get to the beach. It is okay to do by yourself, there are plenty of people going there and... More

A hard one hour hike over the mountain to this isolated beach. A few teenagers camping in the woods but harmless. Take anything you need with you and climb with hiking shoes not Sandler. You will really enjoy. The beach has large waves and strong undertow so strong swimmers only.

This trail takes about one hour to complete, so 2 hours there and back if you take it easy. The beginning and end of the trail are relatively steep and the trail is mostly though forest except for the last 15 minutes. All in all a nice walk, and if you have taken a beach towel and swimming trunks with... More

An isolated beach, very beautiful place. There are no facilities, no structure. People usually go there to camp, but there are no properly places for that. The access is through a trail (1 hour) which is very well-mantained. Very good place for surfing too. You should take your own food and beverages with you, since there are nothing there, just...

I finally went to see and swim at Lagoinha do Leste. I couldn't understand why it took so long. It is inaccessible by car but it is not an excuse. I chose the footpath by the Matadero Beach. It is the longer way but really worthy as you go by the shore. Don't forget to bring along water, some fruits... More

We took the shorter but more difficult trail to the beach and it wasn't too bad at all. Definitely wear some decent shoes and take some water but given enough time pretty much any level of fitness should be fine to get there. Once you are there you'll have loads of space to enjoy the beach, it's stunning and well... More

I went for a hike with friends and all the views were awesome!! You walk through the atlantic forest for at least 01:45 hours and the places have a good sinalization and stones seemed to have been placed there. During most part of the way you can appreciate the beach and Campeche Island. The water is so blue , so... More

Highly recommended for those who are not lazy and love nature. I did it twice, once was raining and we spend almost 2 hours to reach the beach due to very slippery rocks. Can be dangerous for some people.

Amazing view, worth the effort. Don't start to late to completely enjoy the trip. Great beach, not for people that get tired easily.
