TAIPUS DE FORA

With more than 7 km in length, giant palm trees, coral reefs and clear sand, the beach of Taipus de Fora is the most popular of the peninsula. It was elected the sixth most beautiful beach in Brazil by the magazines Viagem e Turismo and Quatro Rodas - Best of Brazil.

In recent years, the infrastructure of the beach has grown with pousadas, houses, bars-restaurants and other services.
