Praia da Caixa d'Água is the long beach in front of town. Across a tidal canal is Praia do Farol, a broad attractive beach that’s good (and convenient) for swimming and sunbathing. Further on, past a rocky outcrop, is Praia da Princesa with a cluster of beach restaurants followed by 7km of lovely white sand. Across an even stronger canal is Praia do Mupéua, extending another 7km to Fortalezinha village.
