The first summer houses were built on this beach. Today most of them have become “pousadas”/inns, stores or restaurants, and the few that remain are rented to tourists throughout the year.
Similar to the houses converted into “pousadas”, the old beach kiosks, almost all owned by local families.
The first beach is also known for marine attractions. This beach also serves as the landing area for the tirolesa, or zipline, from the lighthouse.
This is well known especially among young people.
The beach forms the stage for “rodas de capoeira” at the end of the day.
This beach also offers several accommodation options: tents, inns, restaurants and campsites.
This beach is special due to Caitá Island, formed by a large barrier of coral reefs. The underwater view offers coral and fish of all colors and shapes. It’s possible to rent all necessary equipment. Group boat trips can be arranged as well.
At first sight, Fourth Beach appears to have no end. A great barrier of coral forms innumerable natural swimming pools along this beach. Fourth Beach is much quieter than her sisters.
Following Fourth Beach, the first entrance goes to Zimbo, a small village. Entering Zimbo, there are several trails that lead to the village of Gamboa, or to the mount [hill] of Mangaba.
Walking a little further, after crossing a mangrove swamp and a small river, is the Fifth Beach or Beach of Enchantment. Until recently, it was still considered part of Fourth beach, as well as all of the extension of beach to the source of the river that separates the island of Tinharé from the island of Boipeba. Before arriving to Boipeba, there is the small village of Garapuá, a fishing town.
