It's very popular among locals and tourists to visit by means of buggie ride where your driver takes you along the beach and then via the dunes to Genipabu. Here you have many options for a lunch stop, the beaches are clean, water is warm...More

Clean sandy beach, at the part close to the famous dunes with barracas for shade, food and drink, on the large rest good for walking on the sand, and for swimming in waves that are not too high.

You need to climb up the dune and see the view, wow what a view. Once you get to the top there are some shops so make sure you bring money and dont forget to ask for the discount.

I honestly have only been to this beach once with my wife's family. However, this is probably what I would consider one the best beaches I have ever seen in my life. The views are incredible, there is a restaurant literally sitting on the water,...More

The beautiful sand dunes are just incredible. A bit hard to get up there if you aren't in good shape but it's worth the workout. The view from up top is just incredible. I have been there a few times and enjoy it every time....More
