It is like a popular place that the island tours stop for lunch, but there isn't really anything special about the beach itself.

The staff was nice. They had many different dishes but the taste was just average. The credit card machine was not working. It is very well located, just I'm front on the beach. They didn't charge us to use the sun beds.

Amazing food, the best meal we had on the island: fish with grilled fruits, at Oca da Onca (skip the busy arrival part and go to the total left of the bay).
