Grant Beach

Reviewed By Walter B - Curitiba, PR

This is a nice beach for kids, as the water is calm and warm during the summer. It is however (and maybe because of those qualities) extremely busy. Go during the week but avoid weekends!!!! Too many people around. Butvthe place is very nice and beatiful.

Itajuba Beach

Reviewed By Priscila B - São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil

Não fui com um dia bonito, mas fico imaginando se tivesse. essa praia tem um visual incrível para tirar ótimas fotos! deve ser excelente para fazer álbum de casamento rs. Tranquila, praia limpa, água quente (apesar de estar nublado) e com muitas pedras. Dá para atravessar pelas pedras e ir em outra praia. Têm poucos ambulantes e não vi aluguel de cadeiras e guarda sol, por isso é importante levar.

Pedras Brancas e Pedras Negras Beach

Reviewed By Daniel A - Porto Alegre, RS

A divisão entre o basalto e o calcário da um contraste impressionante, nao tem areia o que dificulta o acesso a praia. Mas da própria avenida da para observar as rochas. Lindo lugar.

Tabuleiro Beach

Reviewed By agilberttx - Barra Velha, SC

Tabuleiro Beach is several kilometers long, with numerous life-guard stations and a nice, long sidewalk along the beach for strolling. The sand is generally moderately wide and finer than that of the Central Beach, making for a more pleasant "sand in the toes" experience. It is not a particularly good Surfing beach, but usually there are those trying. The palm trees planted along the beach add a bit of a romantic touch. This beach is the favorite of the locals.

Costao dos Naufragos Beach (Barra Velha)

Reviewed By Priscila B - São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil

Praia frequentada por muitos jovens que ficam no calçadão papeando e tomando uma gelada. Adorei as estátuas, independente da religião, achei uma praia bem espiritual. Muitos bares e restaurantes ao redor. Não entrei no mar, mas pude observar a limpeza da praia.
