Outside the city, so you need a car;/taxi/bus to get there. Starting from the indicated place on the road, walk about 20 min to reach this place and other 15 to reach Havaizinho beach, just beside.

After a short walk through the jungle in which you can see old sceletons of buildings you get to a very nice beach, with lots of nice surfers. You can even buy some small snacks at a beach bar.
