Outside the city, so you need a car;/taxi/bus to get there. Starting from the indicated place on the road, walk about 15 min to reach this place and other 15-20 to reach Engenhoca beach, just beside. Great view when approaching Havaizinho.

It's an easy walk from Encenhoga or Itacarezinho beaches (the walk from Itacarezinho is esecially beautiful). The sea is safe for swimming, there is a nice barraca near the beach. It's a lovely place just to relax.

Go through the jungle and some obstacles an you will find this small paradise. Great waves that is why they call it small Hawaii. Almost deserted when I was there. If you like adventure and great sceneries don't miss this one!

Small, often "private" beach surrounded by coconut trees, with white sand and warm water and one dude making delicious tapiocas (local snack) and opening up fresh coconuts for a cool drink. Can't ask for much more!
