  • The place is beautiful. Be sure to visit this location if you are in Porto de Galinhas. This beach is distant from the center of Porto de Galinhas and most of the hotels that are on the beach of Cupe, so get ready to spend at least $40 a taxi. Beach ideal for children, because there are no waves, there are several places to savor a snack, but the more inconvenient are the ambulants, they do not leave you alone.

  • Very quiet and tasty beach to stay, but has good concentration of tourists and the sand strip is small! It is a very delicious natural swimming pool!
