A really beautiful beach! The surf was too strong for me but many people enjoyed it. There is a close-by hiking trail called Costão that is definitely worth the trip (1 hour round trip).

I love the scenic view of the beach and rock formations. There is a certain place where it is safe to swim because it is surrounded by big rock formations that covers it and hinder the big waves to come in...

Like an hour by bus #38 from Niterói. In the end of the beach there are more calm water. Climbing the Big stone montain, you could see an amazing view, for take good pictures, but taking care cause waves are strong, already people died.
