Took a boat ride there, the water was Crystal clear, nice and clean. Great for kids. Doesn't have lots of options of food, so it's good to bring your own snacks

I liked the clean water, although it was very cold and I couldn't enjoy the beach. The parking is not for free - there is a tax of R$10,00 and the "parking area" is awful! Good place to take beautiful photos.

The weather will be warm, even though is winter, the real question is how will be the water temperature!!! Normally at that tome isn't so cold, but we can never be totally certain.
