Went to this beach as part of the Morro Branco tour. For younger kids this is the most exciting part of the tour, lots of beach with a lagune and a swimming pool at the hotel we visited with OceanView tours. Also very nice scenery with mini canyon like rock formations bordering the beach. Saw no fountain though and after... More

This beach is beautiful-- you must go to the area called "Croco-Beach", which has large, thatched umbrellas to sit under for protection from the sun. The water is beautiful, which waves breaking at intervals on their way to the shore, very beautiful. There are tide pools; great for dipping. The sand is very wide, ideal for a soccer on the...

I've been there on a buggy tour, which I strongly recommend (be careful though to pick certified buggy driver to avoid accidents). This is a long beach, with plenty of nature around. The "fontes" are just over the cliff, by the sea. Don’t miss a buggy tour along this and other beaches, and over the sand dunes.

We stayed at a large but reasonable priced villa at Praia dos Fontes. The villa had a sizable pool and fronted the ocean. In the morning we would open up the French doors of the master bedroom and look out over the ocean just meters below. The beach itself offers very few tourist accommodations, just a few barracas for lunch... More

We had been told or read about fresh water streams pouring from the sandy cliffs but we did not find anything more than a few pipes with a little water coming out. Perhaps we looked in the wrong place. The colored sandy cliffs were unusual.

You swim in the warm ocean and take an outdoor shower from the natural springs. Not usual.
