Beautiful beach but may get pretty crowded in the afternoon, as all the water taxis arrive with all the happy travellers onboard

Well worth a visit. Gorgeous beach, well preserved but there is No food or drink allowed. No rubbish of any kind. Leave the beach as you found it - that's the rule.

I go to arraial twice a year with the university students for field work on Forno Beach. This amazing beach can be reached by boat or through an easy track from Praia dos Anjos. Don't miss it!
