Another beach totally away from any crowd or tourists. Get the road to Ribeirão da Ilha ( turn right close to Morro das Pedras, ask locals ) and follow it to its end. From there get the dirt road as far as possible toward Ponta dos Naufragados, leave your car there ( better do not leave any valuables inside ) and get the trail, its a 30-40 min walk. It is worth the walk. Beautiful place, hollow waves at the right side , holds size and produces excellent barrels. At the left side there are good lefts breaking . Works best with S swell and W, NE wind. Never S wind.
