“Polluted, strange people”

Reviewed 18 October 2012

Altough I like surfing, this place is not only polluted by its illegal constructions in the beach area, such as too many pousadas and Bars, it also has a starnge vibe, people wanting to sell dope and little thieves...its a shame, but avoid this place, unless its a surfchampionship

Very pretty, good for swimming and surfing, manned by lifeguards.

Chairs and umbrellas to hire, lots of shacks for drinks and snacks, good beach restaurant, friendly cool surfing dudes and pretty girls! Good for people watching! Can recommend the coconut drinks and barbequed cheese on sticks from the man with the little mobile bbq. Lots of locals selling snacks and crafts but they don't pester you.
Word of warning - don't hang around after dark or walk into town after dark. Lots of reports of assaults and muggings at gun point from people by the surrounding favelas. They target tourists. Only carry small amount of cash. Take motor taxi (motorbike) or call for a taxi.

It is worth to take a walk to see Tiririca Beach, with reefs at both ends, it's only maybe a couple hundred meters long, but beautiful. Lots of surfers go there as the waves seem to be good for surfing.There is a place for snacks and drinks as well as a restaurant. A few pousadas are close by, e.g. Tanara, Sage Point.
