The place is beautiful and a little more preserved than the other beaches in the area. Wish the waters were calmer, but for an easy staying with family and friends I just can't think of anywhere better within 50km. 😊

Arembepe beach offers a taste of traditional Brazilian fishing villange and a hippie location with his village, "Aldeia Hippie" that sattled years decades ago. It does not feel to be in a touristic place hoever the village has good facilities and interesting and cheap palce to have food. I really reccomend to spend a day or 2 in Arembepe, if... More
