Police in Brazil don’t investigate and they are unprepared to address anything. They are nothing but potted plants. Accommodation: Hotels and Inns in Ipojuca...More

An amazing opportunity to update your profile's pictures!!! Great beach -- calm and clean water -- with good infrastructure -- bars and shower. I recommend to take a very nice walk and do not miss the sunset at Pontal! Incredible!!

A lovely beach where the mangrove meets the sea. There is a small bar/restaurant along the beach with a limited menu and cold drinks. Prices are not that cheap, but it is a beautiful location.

That's a very beautiful place to watch the sunset, mainly for couples, that was very romantic. We made many amazing photos, we got a short tour through the river by canoe and we saw few sea horses.
