Fodor's Review

A river runs down to the ocean at this long, wide, pristine beach lined with coconut palms, where the beachfront snack bars provide the perfect turf for watching the surfers and kitesurfers, although swimmers should be wary of strong tides. The Santa Maria/Catuense bus company operates six buses here daily. Amenities: food and drink; parking (fee); toilets. Best for: surfing; walking.
