It's a wonderful place. To get there you have to make a light trail but it is not tiring and the view is wonderful. I recommend you to spend a couple of hours there.

Wow. Difficult to find a more beautiful beach anywhere. No wonder its been elected most beautiful beach in the world 4 times. Wow. Really worth dealing with the difficult access to the beach

This is a beautiful beach, which includes a waterfall on its left, but it is not an easy to visit one, since you have to use an iron ladder with more than 40 steps, making it unreachable for handicapped people, overweighted or seniors. The alternative...More

I don’t understand other reviewers complaining about the difficult access tand at the same time the excess number of tourists on the beach! One should be prepared to put some effort to get to a hidden exotic gem rated as the world’s best beach which...More

Gorgeous location. Gets very crowded and is difficult to access up and down a ladder. Waves very very big when we were there with lifeguards constantly whitling at snorklers to stay away from the rocks

Great beach inside a reserve but you´re supposed to go down 187 steps of an iron ladder between rocks. Not for everybody! Fat people would fit in there, children can get afraid. And then you have to climb the 187 steps back to top! :-(

Hi, I guess you will have to count somewhere between 400-500Euros. Sounds like a lot but Brazil is a huge country. In fact, the flight takes around 4 hr 30 min including a stop in Recife. Check the websites from Brazilians... More
