Lovely beach with sand all the way into the sea, no seaweed or broken shells when we visited. No problems parking at 4pm at end of July. Access is via road with lots of single track passing spaces which was easy with a small car.

Yes, the beach is lovely (similar to praia da Maringa I would say), however I probably wouldnt spend the whole day here. A) it is not a commercial beach so less people go her, but as the beach is fairly small it can get crowded...More
