Probably best to park at the nearest beach access and wall along the beach enter. Google drive directions take you to a private resort road access...

👍👍 The trail is short, about 20 minutes, but it can be a bit tiring, cause the climb is steep. The main view point is hidden, after reaching the top is necessary to enter a narrow path with a lot of bush, when you see a falling log blocking the way, take a small climb to the left and you will reach the...

👍👍 Access to Prainha da Barra is next to Barra da Lagoa Beach. As its name says, it is very small, it should have about a 50 meters long. There is no structure of bars and restaurants on this beach, as it is really small. To get to her need to go walking across the pedestrian crossing bridge has in Ba...
