Beaches

North of town is one long bay dotted with barracas (food stalls) and clubs with invisible divisions creating the Orla Norte (north coast): Praia Curuípe (3km), Praia Itacimirim (4km), Praia Mundaí (6km) and Praia de Taperapua (7km) and Praia do Mutá (10km.) The sands are white and fluffy, backed by green vegetation lapped by a tranquil sea, dotted with big beach clubs like Tôa-Tôa, where MCs and dancers lead Brazilian crowds through popular dances.
